CHAPEL OF PROPHET ELIAS

Located south of the village, on a height along the road leading from Alassa to Lofou, is a chapel dedicated to Prophet Elias, which has a splendid view of the sea and the water-dam of Kourris. The Chapel of Prophet Elias was renovated in the end of the 20th century and more specifically in 1999. What is noteworthy is that an icon of Prophet Elias painted by hagiographer Othonas Giavropoulos, grandfather of the former president of the Republic of Cyprus Giorgos Vasileiou, is placed on the iconostasis.
