Cyprus Church Architecture

The churches in Cyprus follow common rules of architecture and design. Humble exteriors, regimented seating and an altar area rich in ornamentation.

Heavy masonry walls, simple exteriors.

Barrel vault interiors with stiff, upright seating. No doubt, you're paying attention.

Altar areas feature an elaborate gold wall.

Two more altars, an overflow of color and glam for the eyes.

Another exterior view.
