Located in the Lefkosia (Nicosia) district, Fikardou village sits at an altitude of 900 metres on the south-eastern slope of Troodos, in the region of Pitsilia. 
 
This secluded and idyllic village, now almost deserted, has been declared an Ancient Monument in 1978 by the department of antiquities, and won the Europa Nostra award in 1987. The village was carefully restored to preserve the 18th century houses with their remarkable woodwork and folk architecture and vehicles are not allowed to enter. Two of these - the House of Katsinioros, and the House of Achilleas Dimitris - are now owned by the Department of Antiquities, and have been turned into museums, exhibiting rural items and depicting rural life in years past.
 
The village church, dedicated to the apostles Peter and Paul, dates from the 16th century AD.
 
The name of the village is believed to have originated from the Greek for ‘den of fugitives’ (‘figa andron’), from the fugitives who were recruited by two dominant clans that controlled the region between 400 AD - 800 AD.
