It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we decided to spend the day in Nicosia.
For the past few days we have been discussing to visit the Church of Saint Filippos at Latsia. The reason was that the Holy Relics (Kara) of Saint Filippos would be in display for just a few days.
Thus we drove to Latsia area which is just outside Nicosia towards Limassol.
It was the first time we visited the Church of Saint Filippos and also the first time to see the Holy Relics. At the time we arrived it was not crowded but people kept coming at the Church to pray and see the Holy relics.
The Church of Saint Filippos at Latsia is the only one in Nicosia dedicated to the Saint and one of the three in the Cyprus. The memory of the Saint is celebrated on November 14th and marks the beginning of the fasting season for the Christmas period.
