Church of Agios Kyprianos - Cyprus
Saint Kyprianos is known for removing curses and relieving people from bad spirits.
Located in the centre of the old housing of Meniko is the church dedicated to Agios Kyprianos and Agia Ioustini.
The church is a basilica with ogive arches and staurolites and a particularly impressive bell tower. Through the centuries, several reconstruction works have taken place at the church of Agios Kyprianos and Agia Ioustini, something which has altered its original form.
On October 2nd, the name-day of Agios Kyprianos and Agia Ioustini, crowds of worshipers from all over Cyprus come to Meniko. On that day a big fair, which is actually one of the biggest in Cyprus, is organised at the community. Over the past few years, the church of Agios Kyprianos and Ioustini attracts worshipers from abroad as well, because of the miraculous properties of the Saints. Saint Kyprianos is known for removing curses and relieving people from bad spirits.
The interior of the church is adorned by a wooden iconostasis dated back to 1818. Next to the iconostasis, on the southern wall of the church, there is an exquisite hagiography of Agios Kyprianos and Agia Ioustini.
