A few nights ago my lovely Russian friend Olia and I walked back from Nicolas Tavern the long way round along the main road, then took a short cut through Eden Square.
As the footpath drops down into Eden Square, we found a beautiful little church that was under construction last year.
This afternoon, I again walked down this path and to my pleasant surprise, I found the church open.
Inside icons, and beautiful carved woodwork. Wonderful craftmanship. Outside is a cast bell with its own little bell tower.
On inquiry, I found the church had been constructed by his family in memory of the head of the family Charo Lambos who died of cancer.
I am reminded of medieval chapels that were often constructed in memory of someone.
Construction of Ayios Charo Lambos was completed February of this year. It is used for special occasions, such as baptisms, the priest coming from Paralimni.
