Ayios Nikolaos (Saint Nicholas), the patron Saint of Sailors, the Navy, the Coast guard and anything to do with the sea. This was because most of the miracles he had performed were related somehow to the sea. So, having this in mind will make your experience even more special when visiting this church. Saint Nicholas Church in Protaras is actually found right next to the sea. You will find it between the fishing port and the beach ‘Luma’.
Beautiful picturesque views all around this church. Great wide-open sea on one side, lovely beaches on the other and don’t forget the fishing port too. This area is also known as the Golden Coast of Paralimni.
The church is very tiny with blue trims and white washed exteriors, a traditional Cypriot look. The outside shape of the building is a cross. It was built like this to represent the holy cross. The interiors are embellished with paintings and murals of orthodox church frescos. It is surrounded by a cobblestone pathway and the bell tower is small but impressively beautiful.
