Full description

We begin our day with a stop at a pottery workshop in Yeroskipou village, where we will see how the potters continue the ancient traditional craft and if you are lucky, you might even try your hand at the wheel.

Our next stop is at the village square where we will see the unique 5-domed church of St Paraskevi, built in the 9th century reputedly on the site where the ancient temple of Aphrodite previously stood.

We will also have a chance to see how the ‘loukoumia’ (Turkish delights) are made and wander around the square with its local produce shops.

From there we will go to a small village, Letymbou, where we will visit Sophia’s traditional house where you can experience rooms with the original furniture and décor as well as traditional costumes.

You will learn how to bake village bread in the clay oven and makes other local delicacies such as the traditional halloumi cheese. Afterwards we will have a brunch –a special “Cypriot breakfast”, prepared by Sophia (included in the price).

Next, we will visit the Saint Neophytos monastery and the “Enkleistra”, an enclosure which was carved out of the mountain in the 12th century by the hermit Neophytos and contains some of the finest Byzantine frescoes.

The main church of the monastery was built around 200 years after the death of St Neophytos and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

Sophia, our guide, did a great job explaining to us about our different stops on the tour and also various facts about Paphos. The stops themselves were an interesting and tasty mix of history, traditional food and art, and local religion.

A trip worth the price! Sophia has a lot of knowledge that she willingly shares with others. Christoph is a very good driver. The places we visited allowed us to get to know the culture and flavors of Cyprus. I recommend everyone to use it :)
