A stunning church. Was closed most of the time but you should be able to see it on a Sunday morning, before or after service.

Wednesday 5th October and we walked passed this impressive Church and Monastery, we had hoped to go in and have a look but it was closed.

We were not sure if it was closed for safety reasons as there was building works going and the base of the massive main dome which was surrounded by scaffolding.

It could have been closed as the lingering effects of the pandemic or only opened on certain occasions. We could find no notice regarding opening times.

Although we were unable to go in we were able to walk around outside and admire this rather special building.

It is rather easy to find as the two tall bell towers and central domed roof, all topped with terracotta tiles, are visible from some distance, they are outstanding external features of this mighty building.

The Church and Monastery were built in 1649 on the site of a stone-age settlement. It is said that two Brothers, Saints Cosmas & Damianos, founded the Monastery. They cared for the sick and the dying and never took any payment, hence the name of the Church translates " without payment".

During the 19th Chuch and Monastery fell into disrepair but was restored when spring waters were discovered on the site, they were believed to have restorative and healing powers.

At the start of the 20th Century they were both partly destroyed due to an earthquake but was renovated on top of the exiting foundation. Monks have lived here since then

The church has been renovated several times in it’s lifetime, but it's original thick stone walls are the same.

Near the front entrance to the Church there is a mosaic picture depicting Saint Cosmas.

We did drive by here on a couple of times during our holiday and the Church was always closed. Every time we passed we commented on what an impressive building it is.

Very beautiful church, inside and out.
I happened to pop in minutes before a wedding so didn't get to fully appreciate it, but seems a very peaceful place to be. Beautiful architecture also.

I was visiting Naousa with my friends when I "stumbled" upon this church. Truly a marvelous sight!

The church stands in the center of the town, at its highest point, and is visible throughout most of it. At night, it lights up brilliantly and makes for a wonderful sight. To reach it, one has to climb a flight of very scenic steps, and the view from its courtyard is very nice and memorable

The interior isn't always accessible so be sure to visit during open hours. It's not an atypical Byzantine church but it is very nice.

Be sure to drop by during your trip if you like churches.

The size and design of this church makes it stand out.
Wooden screen with beautifully painted icons.
Unusual chairs for congregation.

This church is very beautiful. You cannot miss it as it is very central. Plenty parking space and well worth a visit. Remember please dress appropriately if you wish to enter the church.

Easily noticed on the way through the village, if not for its number of domes. If you have time and are interested in archaeology, then this is well worth a visit. The inside holds pleasant attractions.

Dramatic church right on the ring road 400 yds from the Kings Mall. It is impressive & worth a photo.

Normally when we come to Paphos, Agioi Anargyroi is closed. This time, fortunately it was open. What a beautiful church it is; unlike older Orthodox churches, it is very light and open. The highlight is the enormous iconostasis with a vast number of the most beautiful icons. The building viewed from the outside is also very impressive.
