ANOGYRA history

History

The village's built-up area is not very compact. The yards and fences, tidy and verdant, surround all the village's houses.


As far as houses are concerned, those that dominate are the traditional ones which are elongated, two-room and arch-divided, with solariums, upper storeys, and apses, all built with carved limestone that abounds in the village. Around the houses there is usually a tall wall with a street door.

A narrow bridge over a small stream connects the west neighbourhood with the village centre. On one side of the bridge, low and alongside the riverbed, a traditional 14th century well is built. It is made from limestone and is the size of a small room. There are large faucets where water comes out.

In the centre of the village stands the old church of Archangel Michael with a magnificent sundial over the south entrance. The church's other entrance is built in the gothic style. The woodcut women's loft is unique in its kind in the Greek Orthodox Church. There are valuable old icons in the church, the "iconostasi" (icon screen) will impress the visitor with its gold-filled carvings and its venerable, old icons. The Church precinct is decorated by two trees of the Moracea family - very rare in Cyprus. They look like sycamores and are in fact a pair, male and female, since only one of them produces fruits. The name of the trees is "Maclura Pomifera" (osage orange or hedge apple) and the yellow-green fruits have a diameter of up to 15 centimetres and are used for handicraft purposes.

The most impressive part of the village is the large paved central plaza surrounded by traditional, stone-made houses. A stone-made spring with a Mediaeval sculpture, considered to be one of the very few found in Cyprus, stands at the upper part of the plaza.

On entering the village you cannot fail to notice the renovated two room building that houses the Pasteli Museum. Here, the visitor can see all the equipment used for the making of the very sweet "pasteli" from carobs which come from trees all around the village.

Quite close to the museum are two small parks dedicated, and recorded on the memorials, one to the soldier missing-in-action in1974, Panicos Othonos and the other to the fallen, reserve second-lieutenant, Nicos Polycarpou.


Moving on from the plaza toward the east, you pass through the paved, verdant alleys and come to the village boundary where the original Elementary School stands in silence, gazing out at Episkopi Bay and where events organised by the Village Association, particularly the "Pasteli Festival", is held. It is organised in mid September each year and attracts many people from all over Cyprus and abroad.


Anogyra, it really is worth visiting!
