Places to visit in Никосия. Languages: en

The Marble Mausoleum in Faneromeni Square is a significant historical monument next to Faneromeni Church in Nicosia, Cyprus. It was erected in 1878 in memory of four Cypriot bishops and other prominent figures executed by the Ottomans during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1830).

The monument, also known as the Faneromeni Tomb or the Faneromeni Memorial, symbolises Cypriot patriotism and resistance against Ottoman rule. The bishops and other individuals commemorated by the mausoleum were accused of conspiring against the Ottoman Empire, supporting the Greek revolution, and promoting the idea of Enosis (the unification of Cyprus with Greece).

The Marble Mausoleum is a solemn and powerful reminder of the sacrifices made by those who fought for freedom and national identity. Its presence in Faneromeni Square, alongside the historic Faneromeni Church, highlights the rich history and cultural significance of the area.
