Sanctuary of Apollo at Frangkissa

Archaeologists excavating near ancient Tamassos have located one of the most important sanctuaries discovered in Cyprus to date, more than 125 years after its exact position was lost. The Sanctuary of Apollo at Frangkissa was subject to a dig in 1885. Only a small part of the finds from 1885 have remained in Cyprus.
Analysis of the finds shows that the area had been occupied since the Iron Age and was used throughout the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic periods.
