CHRISTENINGS AT APHRODITE HILLS RESORT


CHURCH OF ‘AGIA AIKATERINI’
AT APHRODITE HILLS RESORT


This small church dedicated to Agia Aikaterini (St. Catherine) is based on the architectural design of the Byzantine churches found in Troodos Mountains.

The Church of Agia Aikaterini has an area of 74m2 and is based on similar plans found in the village of Galata and Kakopetria. It is built of local stone and has a steep roof covered with flat tiles.

The most notable characteristics of churches such as this are the steep double-pitched timber roofs and the very few openings in the external walls. Doors are situated in the west and north walls and usually there are no windows. This type of plan, which probably dates back to the 11th century, is unique and no similar architecture can be located anywhere else around the world. 

The interior is beautifully decorated with handcrafted and painted Christian icons and religious artefacts.
St Catherine’s Chapel provides an exquisite setting for memorable weddings and christenings with its enchanting beauty and breathtaking views.
