The village of Omodos is a traditional ancient Cyprus village in the Troodos Mountains, famous from ancient times for its winemaking and fruit gardens. It is built on the side of a mountain amongst a green carpet of vineyards surrounded by mountains, and is one of the most beautiful villages in Cyprus.

 

The large village square in front of the monastery of the Timios Stavro (Holy Cross) – unique in graphics – the medieval linos (winepress), the tight roads, and the stone-built houses, all give the village a particular beauty and charm. The same houses are of great architectural interest, the main elements being the roof bricks, the flower filled gardens, and the wooden outdoors with various decorations on the balconies.

 

The ornament and true pride & joy of Omodos is the Monastery of the Holy and Life-giving Cross, built at the heart of the community. It rises majestically and with its imposing presence it becomes a significant part of Cyprus’s cultural heritage. The Monastery of the Holy Cross is one of the oldest and most historic monasteries of the island.  The golden & chiseled icon screen of the Church, created in 1817, with the case of the Holy Cross and the ancient icons of Russian style, is of great importance.

OPTIONAL ACTIVITES

The optional activities offered are below.  To attend, please sign up during registration.

 

#1:  Larnaka’s Foinikoudes Promenade, Agios Lazaros church and Lefkara Village - ($75 includes lunch with local wine and soft drinks)

 

  • Larnaka’s most famous promenade of ‘Foinikoudes’ is a 600-metre long stretch that
    combines coast, entertainment, and culture along its palm-tree-lined length. The distinctive, towering palm trees were planted in the 1920s and have become a landmark in the city, with the strip attracting large crowds both day and night.

  • Located in its own square in the town center, the magnificent stone church of Agios Lazaros is one of the most remarkable examples of Byzantine architecture in Cyprus and lies over the tomb of the saint. Built by Byzantine Emperor Leo VI in the 9th century, the church was restored in the 17th century. Although the three domes and original bell tower of the church were destroyed in the first years during Ottoman rule, the gold-covered iconostasis has survived today and is a superb example of baroque woodcarving.

  • Located in the Larnaka region, the mountainous village of Lefkara is split into Pano Lefkara and Kato Lefkara (higher and lower Lefkara) and is world-renowned for its traditional handicrafts of lace embroidery and filigree silver. The character of the village is very picturesque with its narrow, winding streets and traditional architecture of old, terracotta-roofed houses.

 

#2:  Kourion, Apollon Temple, and Petra tou Romiou - ($82 includes entrance fees, lunch with local wine and soft drinks)

 

  • The archaeological remains of Kourion - which was one of the island’s most important
    city-kingdoms in antiquity – are some of the most impressive on the island.  Excavations have unearthed many significant finds, which can be viewed at the site. The city-kingdom was built on the hills of the area, and it overlooked and controlled the fertile valley of the river Kouris.  Archaeological evidence suggests that Kourion was associated with the Greek legend of Argos of Peloponnese, and that its inhabitants believed they were descendants of Aegean immigrants.

  • The sanctuary of Apollon Hylates, God of the Woodland, was an important religious center and underwent many extensions and alterations in different periods.  The majority of the monuments – as they can be seen today – belong to the site’s 1st century AD restorations, and consist of Apollo’s temple (which has been partly restored), pilgrim halls, the ‘palaistra’ (where athletes exercised and played games), a bath complex, and a holy precinct.

    Aphrodite’s mythical birthplace ‘Petra tou Romiou’ is an interesting geological formation of huge rocks along one of the most beautiful coastlines on the island, located on the southwest coast of the Pafos (Paphos) district.

 

#3:  Kolossi Castle, Kourion, Petra tou Romiou and free time at Limassol Marina  - ($60 including entrance fees)

 

  • Kolossi Castle is a well-admired 15th century castle is situated in Kolossi village.  During the 13th century, it served as the headquarters of the knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. The castle today is well maintained and looks very similar to towers found across Europe. It was built with military architecture, offering security within the area and resisting any attacks.

  • The archaeological remains of Kourion -  which was one of the island’s most important city-kingdoms in antiquity – are some of the most impressive on the island, and excavations have unearthed many significant finds, which can be viewed at the site. The city-kingdom was built on the hills of the area and overlooked and controlled the fertile valley of the river Kouris.  Archaeological evidence suggests that Kourion was associated with the Greek legend of Argos of Peloponnese and that its inhabitants believed they were descendants of Aegean immigrants.

  • Limassol Marina is a Cyprus landmark that has changed Limassol’s image. The Limassol marina has been named one of the most attractive and outstanding projects in Europe.
