Ayioi Anargyroi Chapel in Protaras

ayioi_anargyroi_chapel-114838

One of the very few buildings found in Cape Greco National Park is the picturesque white-washed Chapel of Ayioi Anargyroi. The chapel is dedicated to Saint Kosmas and Damianos, two doctors who cured the sick without receiving money in exchange. The locals refer to them as the Omosianoi Saints. As legend has it, during the doctors’ journey they faced some trouble out at sea and their boat carried them into a cave which was converted into a chapel. As the years went by, a new chapel was built on the peak of a rock right above the cave.

Besides the serenity the chapel exudes, visitors marvel at the amazing vistas of the surrounding landscapes as well as glistening azure sea.
