To honour our heroes, monuments were created as well as a museum of heroes and missing in the central square of the municipality mentioned above.
The museum of heroes was erected by the Ministry of Education and Culture with collaboration of the Council of Historical Memory of Fight [EOKA] 1955-59 [SIMAE] and concerns the heroes Ionas Nikolaou, Kyriakos Kolokasis and Kyriakos Kakoullis. The openings were taken place on 31 August 2006.
Also in the municipality there is a monument with a park inside for the missing of Turkish invasion 1974, Makis Pamporis and Antreas Koukoumas. This park was created by Christodoulos and Anastasia Pampori in the memory of their missing son and their relative.
