Located at the western end of the village are the remains of a chapel dedicated to Agios Mnasonas. It is a 300 A.D. chapel which has been deeply marked by time. The efforts for the maintenance and restoration of the chapel began by the Department of Antiquities during 2008. The sources for the maintenance and restoration of the chapel mainly come from sponsorships.

According to tradition, the church was constructed at the location where the Saint used to live during the period that he taught Christianity in Pafos, from the northern to the southern edge of the town. Distinguished among the remains of the church is the double masonry in the interior, three semi-collapsed arches and an underground tunnel with an unexplored, up until today, exit. The residents of the village remark that the tunnel was the runaway exit of the hounded Christians.

Finally, it must be mentioned that one of the underground corridors of the chapel is the place where the holy relic of the left arm of the Saint is kept.
