Cyprus Pictures: Church of the Five Domes at Geroskipou

Thursday 16 August 2001

Today pictures of the Church of the Five Domes at Geroskipou, a 20 minute drive from Pissouri. Geroskipou is the village that is famous for making and selling Cyprus Delights (generally known elsewhere as Turkish Delights).

Church of the Five Domes at Geroskipou
The Byzantine church of Agia Paraskevi dates back to the 10th century, and is formed of a basilica surmounted by five domes forming a cross, with beautiful 15th century-murals.

The village has a long association with the myth of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, as this is where she was said to have had her secret garden. It became a silk-making centre of the Byzantine Empire after Orthodox monks smuggled some silk worms out of China. The village is also noted for a slew of pottery workshops along the main street.
