Good Friday Stroll – 9 Epitaphios in Old Nicosia

There was a flood of young people and people of other ages visiting the churches of Nicosia Within-the-Walls during the afternoon of Good Friday 26 April. Reviving an old custom, we venerated the Epitaphios in 9 churches. In order of visit Chrysaliniotissa, Agios Kassianos, Phaneromeni, Agios Eleftherios, Trypiotis, Agios Savvas, Agios Philoumenos, Agios Antonios, Agios Ioannis (Cathedral). Chrysanthemums, white and purple, were the prevailing flowers used for decoration, and then roses. Enjoy the photos. Best wishes for a Happy Easter.
