Located in the Troodos mountain range, in the Pitsilia region of Lemesos (Limassol) district, the village of Kyperounta sits at an altitude of approximately 1.300 metres.
 
This leafy village is the third highest on the island and maintains its traditional character and an active population. Its distinctive features of uphill roads, grapevines, small yards and houses with tiled roofs and picturesque lofts add to its natural charm. It is famous for its apples, wine and traditional cold meats.All these make up the charming character of the village.

Kyperounta was established during Byzantine times and takes its name from the weed ‘kypros’ or ‘kyperi’, which grows abundantly in the area. The special microclimate of the area prompted the English in the 1930s to build a sanatorium in the village for patients with tuberculosis patients, which today serves as the Troodos Hospital.

Amongst its attractions are the village’s church dedicated to Agia Marina - which dates back to the 18th century – as well as the new and imposing church of Agios Arsenios, the ancient church of Timios Stavros with its unique frescoes which also functions as an icon tower, and its three museums of Natural History, Folk Art and the National Liberation Struggle.

Other interesting places to visit are the Kyperounda Winery and the Adventure Mountain Park, whilst there are also two lovely nature trails to hike; ‘Doksa soi o Theos’, and ‘Teisia tis Madaris. In the community there is a hotel and agrotourism accommodation for visitors as well as several places to have a meal.
