Church services to mark the saint’s day of Ayia Marina will be held at the chapel of the same name in the Dherynia buffer zone on Friday and Saturday, the Cyprus News Agency said on Wednesday citing a Dherynia municipality announcement.
The municipality had informed the public that Unficyp has once again given permission for a service to be held at the chapel on Friday evening and on Saturday morning. Worshippers will be able to visit the chapel in their private vehicles. The chapel is a listed ancient monument. The main part of the chapel is believed to date back to the 12th century. Linked to it with a passage is a second chapel that possibly dates to the 15th century. The complex is built over a cave with holy water.
