Akhyronas Barn Museum

The Akhyronas Barn Museum is located in Liopetri Village, which is within the Famagusta district of Cyprus.

On September 2, 1958, the Battle of Liopetri was fought in Liopetri Village between the British and EOKA, which stands for the National Organization of Cypriot Struggle (or Cypriot Fighters).  During this battle, four EOKA fighters from Liopetri were killed.

The Akhyronas Barn Museum is more of a national memorial site that was built to commemorate the battle and these Cypriots.

This Akhyronas Barn Museum is geared towards Greek-Cypriots and the museum signs and text are in Greek with no translations.
