Greek and Turkish-Cypriots join forces to restore St Panteleimon monastery

After vandals broke into and damaged the Greek Orthodox Monastery of St Panteleimon in Myrtou, Cyprus, an initiative was launched by the Turkish side to clean up and restore the Monastery. The act came only two years after the monastery had been conserved with the support of the European Union, as a landmark of the area’s cultural and historical heritage.
