For cave of sleeping there are reports from the 15 century. Fynes Moryson, who visited Cyprus in 1596, makes reference to the Seven St. George and in accordance with the cave was located one mile from Paphos. Presumably, the "Seven Sleeper" is the The Seven children in Ephesus. Distant memories of that dedication should be the name "Seven St. George."

The cave was connected with the underground church of Agia Paraskevi is situated in the center of the village, twenty minutes to go through the one. Indeed, once the church of Agia Paraskevi, was the sanctuary of the church and a hatch because the old people dierotountan leading, once gathered a large group of men (villagers), together with a group of explorers and have harmed the route from the church Agia Paraskevi and went to the chapel of St. 7 - Giorkas had to use oxygen cylinders and lanterns to be able to go and make the journey and see where it leads. This was invented by early Christians to escapes when they chased the non belivers.

Also, it is important to record that there was someone there though holy priest who served in the church of Agia Paraskevi then commanded to build the part and to close the small hatch.
