Description

Omodos The picturesque, beautiful wine village of Omodos is located at 800 meters in the Troodos Mountains, in the Krasochoria region. It is not so far from Lemesos (Limassol) and is one of the most traditional and charming villages in Cyprus. It has existed since the Frankish era and is represented on old maps of Cyprus as 'Homodos' or 'Homoclos'. The name of the village goes back to the Greek word for street ('odos'). Omodos is famous for its wine, zivania pomace brandy, handmade and tightly woven lace, and aromatic arkatena (crispy rusks with yeast). Sunken church of Alassa The Kouris Reservoir is the largest reservoir in Cyprus and is located in the lower part of the Troodos Mountains. Water from several springs and the River Kouris feed this drinking water reservoir. Construction was completed in 1988 and the old village of Alassa was flooded by the dam. The village of the same name was rebuilt further upstream and all the inhabitants relocated. During the dry season, when the water level drops, the spire of St Nicholas‘ Church rises above the surface of the water, providing an impressive photo opportunity. If the summer has been very dry, you can even walk into the old church with dry feet. Millomeris Waterfall Between the visits to the two villages, we will try to leave the stress of everyday life behind and visit one of the most beautiful natural places in Cyprus. This beautiful place is the Millomeris falls.The name of the waterfalls is derived from the combination of two words. Millos and Meros. Millos means wet in the Cypriot dialect and Meros means place, hence Millomeris denotes a wet place. The waterfall carries the waters of the Kryo Nero River, which also feeds the Caledonia Falls. Milia Medivel Bridge Take a short trip back in time to the Middle Ages. Imagine how many people, knights, peasants and merchants have crossed this bridge. This medieval bridge connected (still does) the villages of Platres and Pera Pedi and bridges the „Cold River“. An absolute place to soak up nature and take idyllic photos. Pera Pedi Dam Pera Pedi Dam was built in 1954/1955 about 2km north of the village of the same name. The water is used to store water for the population and also to irrigate the fertile soils. Today the dam seems a bit forgotten and lost in time, so you can also spend a few minutes here and enjoy the unique nature and romantic silence. Wine Tasting – Linos Winery A winery with a 200-year history that has managed to pass down the art, love and tradition of making good wine from generation to generation. The winery produces a wide range of wines from local and foreign grape varieties grown in private vineyards under the care and supervision of the Herodotou family. You now have the opportunity to taste some of the delicacies, including the unique blue wine known all over the world and certainly a liqueur or our traditional Zirvania. At this winery, we will end the day together before heading back. Probably happy….
