Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage visits Panagia Church in Trachoni/Demirhan
and Profitis Elias Church in Philia/Serhatköy







On 22 May 2013, within the framework of the European Union funded project to support emergency interventions for Cultural Heritage Monuments, the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot members of the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage visited the Panagia Church in Trachoni/Demirhan and the Profitis Elias Church in Philia/Serhatköy.

The visit is part of the Technical Committee’s supervision work in different cultural heritage sites island-wide where emergency interventions are currently being implemented.

Earlier this month, the Technical Committee had visited the Mosque in Deneia/Denya – which was the first site to benefit from similar intervention. New site visits to the Melandrina Church in Kalograia/Esentepe and to the Monastery of Apostolos Andreas are planned for the following weeks.

The said visit aimed at monitoring the current condition of the two sites upon the start-up of the works; ensuring that emergency interventions were being carried out according to the agreed project design, and providing technical advice on how to address unexpected structural problems so as to ensure sustainable safety of the sites.

The emergency interventions are funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme Partnership for the Future (UNDP-PFF) in partnership with the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage.

These works aim at fostering collaboration between the Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots to protect, preserve and promote the island’s cultural heritage.
