Description

Cyprus is full of hidden treasures and you’ll explore some of the island’s rural highlights on this full-day excursion into the Troodos Mountains. You’ll drive into the countryside – where most say the trip is worth it for the views alone – to Anogyra, Lampadistis Monastery and Kalopanayiotis with a few delights in between.

Itinerary
  • Start your tour in Anogyra Villageexpand_more

    First up is Anogyra, a gorgeous village that’s surrounded by carob trees. We’ll stop off at the Carob and Pasteli Museum to get better acquainted with this sweet treat before heading to Tzelefos Bridge. 

  • Proceed to Kalopanayiotis Villageexpand_more

    Here, you’ll stop at a tavern for a traditional Cypriot lunch before visiting another highlight of this day - the Lampadistis Monastery, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1985. Apart from the complex of the three churches, there are other monastic buildings including cells, auxiliary rooms and an oil press and before heading back to the resort you’ll be able to sample a typical herbal tea in Mandria.

  • Examine St John Lampadistis Monasteryexpand_more

    Located in the Troodos valley of Marathasa (just off the village of Kalopanagiotis), the precise date of the monastery’s foundation is not known, and the building complex that survives today has undergone extensive reconstruction and restoration at different periods. The Latin Chapel contains the most complete series of Italo-Byzantine paintings in Cyprus.
