Nestorian Church

This churched was built by a Syrian merchant for the Syrians living in Famagusta in 1339.

There are frescoes of camels and texts in Syriac – the language used by the Nestorians in their religious ceremonies. The belfry and the attachments are later additions.

The entrance is very plain with a pretty rose window over it. The vaulted ceiling is supported by pillars with ornamented shafts.
