Agios Sozomenos Abandoned Village

The Agios Sozomenos Abandoned Village is located near Yeri Village and the Green Line, within the Nicosia district of Cyprus.
 


This village was abandoned in 1964, due to the fighting between Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots.  Previously, the residents of the Agios Sozomenos Village were predominately Turkish-Cypriots.

The Agios Mamas Church Ruins, which will be featured in an upcoming blog post, are situated within the abandoned village.
 



The Agios Sozomenos Abandoned Village is an interesting site to explore, especially for those wanting to visit the Agios Mamas Church Ruins.
