Agios Prokopios – Northern Cyprus Heritage (9)

agios prokopios  Agios Prokopios

In Sinirürstü / Syngrasis stands the church of Agios Prokopios. The building looks strong and healthy, and looks better now than it did on a photograph on this site (http://patrimundianorthcyprus.e-monsite.com/rubrique,ayios-prokopios,545036.html), that gives you by the way lots of information about heritage in Northern Cyprus.
The inside is not well preserved and pidgeons seem to rule the place which is not favourable for conservation of course. On the walls of the church’s courtyard we still find the words EOKA and ENOSIS: visible memories of fighting times. Is it a coincidence that the graveyard with its crosses in this courtyard was destroyed?
