Heroes Monument and Missing Persons
The Missing Persons’ and Fallens’ Monument is located in the centre of the community, next to the Community Council offices.

It is stone-built with arches which remind you of old fountains. In the middle there is a tall plaque where the names of the heroes are inscribed.  

It was constructed in 2002 and it was designed by architects of the District Administration of Lefkosia.

The monument is dedicated to the following heroes:

  • Costas Mishiaoulis, who was murdered on July 17, 1974.
  • Kostas Ch. Katalanou:  Within the programme frame of exhumation and the identification of the Research Committee of Missing Persons his bones were found, which were identified with the DNA method .The exhumation took place in the period 2005, 2008 and 2010 from the hill of Lapatsa, which is very close to the north of the occupied village of Skylloura.
