At an average altitude of 560 metres, the village of Lysos has existed since Medieval times with legends of the Medieval hero Digenis still told in the area. The village is located about 36 km northeast of Pafos, and can be reached by following the B07 route and then the E723.
The name of the village is believed to have its origins in the ancient Greek settlements in Asia Minor that settlers had brought to Cyprus, and an archaeological site in the area has unearthed tombs chiseled out of rock and geometrical vessels that further cement this theory. The name itself has archaic origins and originates from the Greek word "liono" as it was an industrial area for the melting of metals.
The village is one of the largest in the Pafos region, with its territory extending to the peak of Pafos Forest where the rare bird of prey - Bonelli's eagle - can be spotted, along with the shy and rare Mouflon - an endemic species of wild sheep found exclusively on the island.
Sights of interest in the village include its series of old churches, including the main church dedicated to Panagia Chryseleousa - constructed around the end of the 15th century or the beginning of the 16th century. The church is believed to have originally been a Latin temple since its two doors are decorated with blazons.
The village is also known locally for its unique, traditional delicacy of ‘Maxilles’ - a type of dry fig that is consumed as a sweetener, or eaten with almonds or walnuts.
This village is a gem for tourists and for fellow Cypriots
