THE COUNTRY CHURCH OF AGIA ELENI AND AGIOS CONSTANTINOS

Another small but noteworthy country church is that of Agia Eleni and Agios Constantinos, found a little bit outside the village, over a small hill next to the beach.
The Vasiliko Cement Industry built the church around 1995. It is a small country church made of stone and is dedicated to St. Helen because there lies "Vasilopotamos" (Royal River) that -according to tradition -is the landing place where St. Helen arrived in Cyprus, transferring Holy Wood (part from the Holy Cross) to the Stavrovouni monastery. Worth noting is the icon screen of the country church, carved out of wood and made in the Stavrovouni monastery. Mr Paschalis Paschalides, former executive president of the Vasiliko Cement Industry, personally assumed the cost for the making of the icon screen.
