St John's Cathedral (Agios Ioannis)

St John's Cathedral (Agios Ioannis)

The Orthodox Cathedral in the Old City was built in 1662 by Archbishop Nikiforos, dedicated to Saint John the Theologian. The 18th-century wall paintings show Biblical scenes and illustrate the discovery of the tomb of Saint Barnabas at Salamis. The Cathedral's prize features, however, are the iconostasis of carved wood covered with gold leaf, and the magnificent double-headed eagles.

Address: Archbishop Kyprianos Square, Archbishopric
Opening Time: Monday to Friday 8am to 12pm and 2pm to 4pm; Saturday 8am to 12pm, and during mass.
Admission: Free
