Armou Village, the place where you can enjoy spectacular views of Paphos Town

It would be unfair not to write something about Armou Village, the village where I grew up and lived for many years. Armou is a village in Paphos located a few minutes away from the City Centre. You can enjoy the spectacular Paphos town view and horizon sea views from almost every point in the village day and night. When googling Armou, you cannot find enough information apart from properties that are advertised to be sold or rented. Apparently, Armou is a village that has been modernized over the past few years, and many new properties have been built almost everywhere. My grandparents told me that the name of the village came from the fact that Aphrordite’s chariot passed from the village (chariot in Greek is Αrma – Άρμα). The village is accessible from the Paphos-Limassol highway either by taking the Geroskipou-Konia exit or by reaching the Paphos roundabout and taking the exit to Konia. It’s about 5km away, and you can reach the village in 10 minutes. There’s also a bus you can take from Paphos Town. Armou used to have around 460 residents back in 1946; however, today, there are around 670. Most people have left the village and moved to a different town. Many of the current residents are English people who are staying there permanently. There’s a primary school that used to work years ago but since there are not enough children it’s not operating for teaching, instead, the children go to Konia primary school or primary schools located in the City Centre. Agia Varvara church is the only church in the Village. The Church gets busy during Christmas and Easter when all village emigrants return for a short break. I would say that the busiest period of the year is Easter. During the Easter period, an air of festivity envelops the village. On Easter Monday, after lunchtime, the village square hosts an Easter celebration by organizing traditional Easter games, theatre, and music, and everyone is welcome. You can also enjoy food and coffee at Agios Charalambos Tavern and Coffee Shop, located in the village square. The Tsada Golf Course [...]

10+1 Paphos sites to see

Paphos (Pafos) is a beautiful coastal city in the southeast of Cyprus. The history of this beautiful town dates back more than 9 thousand years, from the Stone Age, to the roman times, Byzantium until today. There are a number of sites that have been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Due to the fact that Pafos is the European Capital of Culture for 2017, I’m taking the opportunity to post the must Paphos sites in this beautiful town. Paphos Castle Paphos Harbour Castle is another UNESCO World Heritage Site located at the harbor. It's a beautiful stone-walled castle with a lot of history. It was a Byzantine fort, built to protect the harbor but later destroyed by the Venetians. After the Ottomans ruled, the castle was restored back to its old glory. If you enter the Castle and get to the top you’ll enjoy lovely views of the harbor and the city. Admission: € 2.50 Archeological Park Another UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980. Here you'll find the more important monuments including Saranta Kolones, the Roman Oden, Agora, Asklipieion, Basilica of Chrysopolitissa, Roman mosaics at the House of Theseus, Aion, and Orpheus. Admission: €4.50 (to see all sites) Opening Times: Winter (16th September – 15th April): 8.30 - 17.00 Summer (16th April – 15th September): 8.30 - 19.30 Paphos Odeon Paphos Odeon is one of the most important archaeological sites. Next to the Odeon and near to the New Paphos Lighthouse is a rocky mound that is said to have been the Acropolis of the town. Odeon is not only a tourist attraction but is one of the best amphitheaters to stage live musical and theatrical performances. Panagia Chrysopolitissa Panagia Chrysopolitissa is a Christian Orthodox church built in the 13th century. The floors are covered with colorful mosaics which have been preserved. Here you'll find St. Paul's Pillar, one of the most popular spots for Christian pilgrims. Admission: Free Opening Times: Winter (08.00 [...]

8 Reasons to visit Paphos Zoo

Honestly, I would never compare Paphos Zoo with any other zoo I’ve been to e.g. London and Edinburgh. Paphos Zoo is small compared to large European zoos, however for the size of a small island the Zoo is a great place to spend your time. Considering that the zoo does not receive any government funding it has managed to develop from a bird park into a large zoo. Paphos Zoo is located in Pegeia near Coral Bay, approximately 3km from Pafos. 1. Open 365 days You can visit any day you wish. The Zoo is open from 9am every day. Closing times change through the year depending on the season e.g from January – March the Zoo operates from 9-5, from March – July it operates 9-6, during August its open until 7pm, September to October from 9-6 and during October-December from 9-5. 2. Biggest Zoo in Cyprus The zoo covers more than 100.000 sq.m, and is Cyprus’s leading tourist attraction. Here you will find an extensive variety of birds and animals from every corner of the planet whilst the collection of parrots and snakes is one of the largest in Europe. 3. Nice environment The zoo has been constructed in a way that offers visitors the ability to not only enjoy the birds and animals but enjoy the magical sounds and nature colours walking through a beautiful environment of lakes, gardens and ponds. 4. Cleanness What is most important is the fact that the Zoo is clean and you will rarely smell the scent of animals. There are a lot of people working there making sure the zoo is kept clean at all times. 5. Parrot and owl show Enjoy a show with flying clever parrots and owls showing off how clever they are and their amazing abilities. Check out the Paphos Zoo website for the show times. 6. Feed a giraffe With 10 EUR you have the chance to feed a giraffe and take a photo along with the kids who will love it. 7. Great experience for kids If you have kids, it’s a great experience for [...]
