  • Kakopetria and Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis 6–Hour Tour

    1. Kakopetria and Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis 6–Hour Tour

    Visit an 11th century UNESCO World Heritage site at Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis painted church, a former monastery where only the chapel survives. The frescoes are superb, dating from the 11th century onward.  Meander inside the picturesque old part of Kakopetria village - visit old olive and grape presses, an old church and watermill. Take a short walk along a shaded stream opposite the old part of Kakopetria village. Cyprus coffee on a coffee shop veranda overlooking the stream is highly recommended, as is a fresh trout meal at a nearby restaurant. Enjoy a customisable route, choosing between Panagia tis Asinou Unesco World Heritage church and of Agios Nicolaos tis Stegis; having a meal in Kakopetria or taking an easy 7 kilometer Artemis walk on the top of Cyprus, or even Caledonia walking trail above Platres village.

Simply amazing

Phivos was so knowledgeable about the country’s history, attractions and the nature, and is really passionate about giving travelers a great experience of Cyprus. The trip was so much more than what it says and what the pictures show on the website, the 11th/12th/13th-century UNESCO churches, the ‘bad-stone’ village and more, tell the living history of Cyprus. I can’t recommend this trip enough to people who are interested in exploring the mountainous, hidden-gem side of the island.
