Palaichori village

Located in the Troodos mountain range in the Pitsilia region of the Lefkosia (Nicosia) district, the village of Palaichori is just 40 km from Lefkosia and can be reached by following the E903 route, then the F915.

The tranquil village is separated in two by the Serrache River, which springs from the Papoutsa mountain, and offers accommodation in beautiful, traditional houses.

The village is home to vineyards, nut and fruit trees, and produces the spirit Zivania in the traditional way. The spirit also plays a role in important village traditions, such as sharing it with friends in the church courtyard on name days.

A number of old and interesting churches, including significant Byzantine churches are worth a visit, whilst other sights include the village square, a museum exhibiting Byzantine Heritage, the restored hideout of the Gregoris Afxentiou, and the statue of the Cypriot Mother.

Fishing enthusiasts will enjoy partaking in the leisurely hobby at Palaichori Dam, which is constructed on the river of Kampiou.
