Kalopanagiotis village

Kalopanagiotis is located in the Troodos mountain range, in Marathasa Valley area of Lefkosia (Nicosia) district.

Kalopanagiotis is one of the most beautiful resorts on the island with its sulphur springs, traditional architecture and panoramic valley views, and is ideal for agrotourism due its peaceful surroundings.

The Monastery of Agios Ioannis Lampadistis at Kalopanagiotis, is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list, and features three Byzantine churches with well-preserved frescos dating back to the 9th and up to the 15th century.

Other interesting sights include the Venetian bridge and the Kykko watermill. The 16th century bridge was constructed from local stone and until recently served as the only access between the village and the monastery. The watermill has been declared a ‘cultural heritage monument’ by the Cyprus Department of Antiquities and is an imposing site, characteristic of the pre-industrial architectural period.

Kalopanagiotis’ charm with its old chapels and churches, the quaint, cobbled streets and footpaths that lead to beautiful nature trails should not be missed.
