Παναγία των Αμπελιών ή Παναγία Αιματούσα

The knownest and busiest “coutry church” of Aradippou. It’s few metres North of the old highway Larnaka - Nicosia west of Aradippou.The country-church is built above the ruins of an older temple that was destroyed by their Saracens. Many times it suffered damages from fires because of the lighted candles that the visitors leave. With the occasional repairs the hagiographies that adorned the country-church were covered. Virgin Mary is known with the double name of "Vines" from the lot of vines that existed in the area and "Aimatousa" (Bloody) from the tradition that wants the Virgin Mary to cure the women with hemorrhage. On 8th of September the country-church functions and there is a big festival.The beautiful natural environment of the area becomes an attraction for the outdoor visits of the local people, mainly on Green Monday.
