Ayios Afxentios Church in Büyükkonuk village restored

The Church of Ayios Afxentios in Büyükkonuk village (Komi Kebir) will be delivered to the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage on Thursday, May 27th, 2015.

According to Greek Cypriot sources, the conservation project of the Church of Ayios Afxentios has been completed. Icons of great value from the Byzantine period were in the Church. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is expected to issue an announcement on the issue.

The bi-communal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage, operating under the auspices of the United Nations, is one of 7 Technical Committees established in April 2008 and is dedicated to recognize and protect the rich and diverse cultural heritage of the island.

Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot members of the Technical Committee are carrying out together cultural heritage preservation projects that are setting a positive example of successful collaboration between both communities in Cyprus.
