Permanent Photo Exhibit “Copper and Cyprus”

After a visit to the Foukasa mine, which is the oldest active mine for 3.5 thousand years, visitors can take a few minutes off to visit the permanent photo exhibit “Copper and Cyprus”, next to the Community Council, within the former primary school of Flassou.

This permanent exhibit contains photographs of the inhabitants’ lives as miners, and other occupations, old photographs of the mines and more.

Photos from private individuals, from the current mining address and various trade unions, were used to collect the photographs.

The exhibition is open daily from Monday to Friday from 09:00 until 19:00.

For more information on the exhibition or to schedule a visit, you can contact the Community Council.
