The Slaughter house of Kalopanayiotis, Marathasa valley, Nicosia

The Slaughter house of Kalopanayiotis

Walking around the narrow streets of Kalopanayiotis all we could find was houses and smiley faces of the people who live there.

We had just finished our walk in the forest and headed back to our car. Well preserved buildings and newly reconstructed streets were really making each corner look great.

One of the buildings we came across looked really interesting so we had to check it out. We found that it was the old slaughter house of the village!

A sign above its metal entrance indicated it was constructed in 1941. Surely it was yet another important point for the village for many years. Now it is closed and we couldn't get inside. All we could see from a window on the side was the main area where animals were slaughtered.

Perhaps it can be a place to be used as a museum now or other activities.
