Ecclesiastical and Viticulture Museums – Koilani village

By April 11, 2018 No Comments

Located in the mountainous village of Koilani, the Ecclesiastical Museum was created by Lemesos Bishopric to house the ecclesiastical art of the parish, and as a district branch of the larger Byzantine Museum of Lemesos (Limassol).

The museum is housed in the church of Monogenis, and showcases exhibits that span a period of around seven centuries. Included are pieces of an iconostasis from 1735, a 19th century pulpit and altar, old icons (from the 13th – 19th centuries), holy utensils, old books (from the 16th – 19th centuries), a 15th – 16th century ‘epitaphios’ (richly embroidered cloth icon used in special religious services), and other relics.

Nearby to the church is the Viticulture Museum, which is housed in a traditional village house and exhibits viticultural equipment and folk art pieces.
