St George's Church and Shrine Caves
Caves in the Cliff
Though suitably mysterious, these are not what we have come to see...
If you look at the top right of this picture you will see the start of what we are here to look at.
This is the first of several caves here, which have become a huge shrine.
There are caves along this path, for about 100 metres. Over the years, they have been filled with icons and other religious effects. The rest of this blog (5 pages) will consist of pictures of the caves themselves. There will be very little comment, as there is not much to say. They really need to be experienced first hand.
How To Get There
So before we look at all the pictures, I thought I would show you where to find the place. You can then go there and see for yourself instead, if you want. To get there, you take the Geroskipou turning at the Debenhams Roundabout, and turn right at the traffic lights. Drive down that road, down a hill, then take the track to the left. When you get there, bear in mind that as well as an interesting place to visit, it is also a spiritual place where people come to pray, so please be respectful.
