Ayios Demetrios Chapel
Saint Demetrios’ chapel lies in the upper neighborhood of Lefkara, a few meters away from the district road “neodromos”. The chapel operates on the nameday of saint Demetrios (26th October) and also on the Friday following Easter Sunday.On that day the tradition used to be that all the young ladies would attend the mass dressed up in their best clothes. The young boys would stand outside the chapel and count the ladies as they entered the chapel. They used to write the final number on the wall e.g. ’60 beautiful ladies at Ayios Demetrios’.
Ayia Marina Chapel
This chapel lies northwest of the village in an idyllic setting. It is mentioned by Saint Neophytos Egklistos who lived during the 12thcentury (Byzantine era). However, the current chapel was probably built at a later stage, possibly during the first Turkish rule. Being at the chapel, the visitor can view Stavrovouni to the east, the castle of rigena and the dam to the north and the chapels of Ayios Thomas and Ayios Georgios Sirkatis below. The chapel is operated once annually on the 17th July.
Ayios Thomas Chapel
The chapel is situated on the location ‘Pampoulatzin’,between Kourvellos and Sirkatis. It is probably the temple of Ayios Thomas settlement that was deserted during the Turkish rule. The chapel was renovated in 1984 with the expense of the ecclesiastical committee, of the public archaeological department and Argyros Stakis.
Ayioi Anargyri and Ayios Neophytos Chapel
These two chapels are dedicated to Anargyri saints Kosmas and Damianos and to saint Neophytos. The bigger one is situated at the village’s entrance and has the size of a normal church. It was restored from a ruined state in the 50s with the financial help of residents of Lefkara. The other chapel is much smaller and is situated close to the first one.
Anargyri saints are considered to be healers of physical and psychological wounds. Saint Neophytos, an important image of literature, lived during the 12th century and came from Lefkara. Saint Neophytos is honored islandwide on the 28th September and on the 24thJanuary.
Ayia Anastasia Chapel
This chapel, dedicated to Santa Anastasia the Healer, lies west of the village at the boundaries of the inhabited area and the country. The chapel that remains today was built in 1927 on ruins of an older temple that was destroyed by fire in 2014. It operates annually on the 2ndDecember, the date on which Santa Anastasia is celebrated.
The Transformation of the Saviour (Sotiros) Chapel
The Sotiros chapel originates in the 1th century and its creator seems to be father Gavriel, who is also the creator of the large church of the Holy Cross. From the top of the hill of Sotira the visitor can enjoy the beautiful panoramic view with its many hills and the Kition sea to the east.
Ayios Georgios Kontos Chapel
The chapel lies in the centre of the village, close to where the old Market was and where the ‘Market’hotel exists now. It has a ‘basilica with dome’ form and its interior is decorated with frescoes. The naming ‘Kontos’ (near) was given because the chapel is near the village, as opposed to another chapel dedicated to Saint George (Ayios Georgios Oxis) that is situated outside the village and belongs to Kato Lefkara (lower Lefkara).
