Due to a time calculation error, I can only leave Canara with 2 hours. Interestingly recommended on this church guide, and I want to take wedding dresses in this church, so I chose here. There are not many people in the church. The devout believers are kissing their Lord and Our Lady. We are wearing wedding dresses and posing in the church. I don't know if it feels very disappointing. It takes about an hour to drive from here to the capital Nicosia. At the entrance of the church is a coffee shop, quite petty bourgeoisie.
