Galata, wanting to express its admiration, its love, and its pride for its heroic children, for eternal remembrance and exemplification to the future generations, has raised in their honour a modest monument. It is a column of 5 metres height with an oblong, brazen piece attached to it, depicting the tattered, khaki shirt of the guerrilla who fell fighting for the freedom of our Cyprus. At the base of the monument, upon a slab of granite, the name of all of Galata's brave men are written as follows:
EVAGORAS PAPACHRISTOFOROU 55-59
ANDREAS GEROUDES 1964
IACOVOS GEROUDES 1974
Every year a national memorial takes place and wreaths are deposited in a ceremony in front of the monument. The Heroes' Monument is on our right as we enter the "Panagia Odegetria" church in the middle of the village. The expenses for the entire project were assumed by the brothers Andreas and Iacovos Philippou. The sculptor who created the Heroes' complex is Andros Kazamias.
