Monastery in Vouno village is about to collapse


Turkish Cypriot daily Havadis newspaper (08.03.17) reports about a monastery which is located north of the  Vouno village and writes that it is in a very bad condition and in danger to collapse.

According to the paper, the monastery which was used as stable for various animals was recently cleaned from animals’ droppings, bottles, and other garbage that piled up in the area for years. However, restoration is needed since there are still graffiti at the wall. Also some parts of the monastery are ready to collapse.

Havadis notes that many tourists visit the area and the monastery and criticize its condition. The “mayor” of  Vouno village Durmus Asandir stated that the monastery is going to collapse completely within the next ten years in case no measures are taken for its restoration.
