Picturesque stone-built Omodos, one of the largest villages of Krasochoria (means 'Wine villages' in Greek), developed around the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross and is a popular destination for visitors.
Kelephos Bridge found just inside Paphos Forest, is the most photographed of the twenty or so remaining medieval bridges in Cyprus. An optional short walk here is highly recommended.
Visit picturesque Omodos and stunning Kelephos Bridge; optionally do an easy walk there or at Troodos on top of Cyprus.
Omodos village is one of the largest villages of Krasochoria (which means 'Wine villages') in Greek. Indeed vineyards and wine have been through the centuries and till today prime produce for this collection of preserved villages north of bustling Limassol. Omodos developed around the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross and is a popular destination for visitors (If travelers prefer we can visit a less touristy nearby village – e.g. Arsos or Vasa).
Kelephos Bridge is the most photographed of the twenty or so remaining medieval bridges in Cyprus, found just inside Paphos Forest.
We recommend doing a walk near Kelephos Bridge, inside Paphos Forest, with the possibility of spotting moufflon (wild sheep). Conversely, we could skip Kelephos Bridge and instead do the flat Artemis walk (at about 1, 800 m) in Troodos. It offers gorgeous vistas, unique geology and habitat.
Profile of Suggested Walk by Kelephos Bridge
From Limassol we head north and uphill to an area known as Krassohoria (wine villages) and either visit Kelephos Medieval Bridge (and do an optional short walk there) or go to the top of Troodos to walk the Artemis trail. Then we explore Omodos village (or if travelers prefer, another village close by) before returning to our base in Limassol.
