Paralimni churches

After the city of Ammochostos (Famagusta) was occupied by Turkish troops in 1974, this small township became the temporary administrative centre of the district. It has an interesting two-aisled church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, which is decorated with unusual 18th century porcelain plates. Sections of the church that date back to the 13th century house a small ecclesiastical museum. There are a number of other interesting churches in the wider Paralimni area.
