​Rigena, the mythical Queen of Cyprus:

Posted by | Jul 01, 2020 |

The bronze statue is two metres in height and is a legacy project of I.W.C. Polis Chrysochou, Arsinoe Europea.

The I.W.C Arsinoe Europea, was established as the 11th club, of 96 District Cyprus I.I.W.

The 2017, Inner Wheel year's theme was "Leave a Lasting Legacy." So the Club members decided to work on a project, for the people of their town to remember "Rigena," who was a powerful Queen. The legend puts her birthplace at the area of the Akamas Peninsula as Forts, Mountains and Forests have been named after her and her mythical love story with "Digenis Akritas" who was a Hero Protector of the people of Cyprus.

The materialisation of this vision has been completed with this year theme "Together we Can"

With the dedication to our Culture, hand in hand in Inner Wheel spirit.
