Heroes Monument

The Heroes Monument is in the centre of the village. It was created by Andros Kazamias as a show of admiration, love and pride towards the Cypriot heroes, for eternal memory and as an example for future generations.

It is a column of around 5m in  height. On it, is an elongated bronze cluster depicting a torn khaki shirt of a rebel who fell fighting for the freedom of Cyprus. At the base of the monument, on a granite plate, the names of the heroes of Galata are written as follows:

ΧΡΥΣΑΝΘΟΣ ΜΥΛΩΝΑΣ (CHRYSANTHOS MYLONAS)

ΕΥΑΓΟΡΑΣ ΠΑΠΑΧΡΙΣΤΟΦΟΡΟΥ 55-59 (EVAGORAS PAPACHRISTOPHOROU)

ΑΝΔΡΕΑΣ ΓΕΡΟΥΔΗΣ 1964 (ANDREAS YEROUDES)

ΓΕΩΡΓΙΟΣ ΖΑΧΑΡΙΑ (GEORGIOS ZACHARIA)

ΙΑΚΩΒΟΣ ΓΕΡΟΥΔΗΣ 1974 (IACOVOS YEROUDES)

ΠΑΝΑΓΙΩΤΗΣ ΑΘΑΝΑΣΙΟΥ (PANAYIOTIS ATHANASIOU)

Every year there is a public national memorial ceremony in front of the monument. Where there is also a deposition of wreaths.

The project was funded by brothers, Andreas and Iacovos Philippou.
