The present church of Panagia Chrysaifiliotissa is located in the center of the Agia Fyla parish. It was erected in 1968 by the Metropolitan of Kiti Anthimos, and is dedicated to the Presentation of the Virgin Mary, celebrated on 21 November. It is one of the largest churches in Cyprus. It is a 5-domed church with elements of Byzantine, Gothic, and Romanesque architecture. The old church of Agia Fylaxeos, which is no longer in existence, once stood very near to where the new church is now located.In one of Limassol’s largest parishes, with approximately 25,000 residents, stands an impressive church which owes its name to the area’s history. The Agias Fylaxeos area is associated with a particular name attributed to the Virgin Mary many centuries ago.
