Agia Napa Church

Limassol, Cyprus

The church was built towards the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, replacing an older 18th century church. It is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. According to tradition it takes its name from an icon of the Virgin Mary, which was found in a glen (Napa in Latin means glen). Another source says that the church owes its name to a temple built in the Frankish period, dedicated to the Holy Nappe of St Berenice, known by the name of Saint Nape.
