* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer.

Just a few meters from the sea, the white rotunda of Limassol is a church that stands out for its unique outer look, as well as the majestic decoration of its interior. This church has originally been a chapel at the cathedral of Ayia Napa church the historical center of the city.

After 1990, when the chapel was destroyed, it moved to the eastern areas, within Ayios Athanasios municipal area,, where is now located. It its the churcch of Ayios Georgios Frangoudes, which took its name after a distinguished man from Limassol, who contributed to the foundation of Panteion University in Greece (find out moe about Georgios S. Frangoudes here.).

What instant;y catches one's attention is the temple's original shape, as well as its all-white appearance. In fact, combined with the curves of modern buildings in the area, such as The Oval, the church creates an utterly interesting picture. The murals painted on all of the walls in the interior of the church — the dome in particular — leave its visitors speechless, while the rays of light coming through the rectangular windows create an incomparable mystique.
