Ayia Thekla Sotira Famagusta
The church near the sea
Agia Thekla is a chapel located a few kilometers south of Sotira on the border between Agia Napa and Sotira, but religiously owned by Sotira. On the beach, south of the village the church of Saint Thekla is built.Several of the portable icons have been painted in the occupied monastery of Apostle Barnabas near Salamina.
Even if Sotira is famous for its many beautiful churches available, it is notable that many couples, locals and tourists choose to celebrate their wedding in this beautiful church. The church, with blue colours and white against the backdrop of the beautiful blue and clear sea, it is the ideal place for such ceremonies. At the chaper they also perform religious functions, christenings and more, attracting more and more people. Very near to the church and facing the sea, there are restaurants, special entertainment venues and a long road with a wonderful oasis for those who like hiking.
You should visit this church, it's worth it!
Agia Thekla is celebrated on September 24th.
