Attractions Larnaca Tochni Ecclesiastical Museum

Tochni Ecclesiastical Museum

Located in the rural village of Tochni, the Ecclesiastical Museum is part of the historic Church of The Saints Constantine and Helen.

The museum room – which adjoins the church – features a range of precious religious relics, including Gospels, icons (dating as far back as the 16th century), and silver and bronze sacred vessels. Also featured is a grand cross, which is displayed in the centre of the museum room.

Most importantly, the museum contains a small piece of the Holy Cross, and a small piece of the relic of Saint Helen, which are of insurmountable religious value.

The church itself is uniquely located on a bridge in the village, and a historically significant structure. Both the bridge and the church are said to have been built by Saint Helen.
