Antiphonitis Church
Built by a 12th century monk originally from Asia Minor, the striking stone church of Antiphonitis (or Anthipanitis, meaning “Replying to Christ”) is part of a former monastery.   Tucked away in the Five Finger Mountains, the church boasts a stunning vista across the North Cyprus coastline.   Inside, you will discover an elegant dome supported by circular columns and arranged in an octagon, with a 15th century-built barrel vaulted and tiled outside loggia and front entrance porch. This design makes the church of Antiphonitis unique in North Cyprus and although much of the church is now derelict, you can still see the remains of the original frescoes inside, plus some added later in the 15th century.
