  Panagia Phaneromeni Church

One of the most impressive of the many churches in south Nicosia is the Panagia Phaneromeni Church, a Greek ortodox church. It's a 19th century church that was built where a nunnery once stood, the Panayia (Virgin Mary) Phanoromeni nunnery.

This church is particularly beautiful inside; its 1659 iconostasis is very richly decorated and well-worth visiting. You won't see here the original icon of the Holy Virgin which gave the name to the church. If you are interested in it, you should head to the Byzantine Museum of the Archbishop Makarios Cultural Centre.
