Kyperounta village

Located in the Troodos mountain range, in 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. Its distinctive features of uphill roads, grapevines, small yards and houses with tiled roofs and picturesque lofts add to its natural charm.

The village was established during Byzantine times and takes its name from the weed ‘kypros’ or ‘kyperi’, which grows abundantly in the area.

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 and its three museums of Natural History, Folk Art and the National Liberation Struggle.

Other interesting places to visit are the Kyperounta Winery and the Adventure mountain Park, whilst there are also two lovely nature trails to stroll through; ‘Doksa soi o Theos’, and ‘Teisia tis Madaris’.
