Frenaros village

frenaros village famagusta

Located in the Ammochostos (Famagusta) district, the village of Frenaros was named after the Lusignan monks that lived in the nearby monastery of Panagia of Hortakion, and were called ‘Fremenors’.

As one of the fertile ‘red soil villages’ (Kokkinochoria), Frenaros is one of the main watermelon growers of the island and produces bumper crops of the juicy and refreshing fruit. Visitors to its annual Watermelon Festival, held in July, can enjoy complimentary fresh watermelon and its products such as ice-cream and cocktails.

The village’s sights of interest include the Byzantine churches of Agios Andronikos and the Archangelos Michael, which date back to the 12th century, and the 15 century church of Agia Marina with its interesting frescoes.

An important religious festival is held to honour Archangelos Michael annually on September 06 (Feast of Archangelos Michael), where visitors are welcome to join in the traditional festivities, which include stalls, entertainment and local food and drink.
