What To Expect
Begin the day with a stop at a pottery workshop in Yeroskipou village, where you will see how the potters
continue the ancient traditional craft and if you are lucky you might even try your hand at the wheel. Next
stop is at the village square where you 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. You will also have a chance to see how the ‘loukoumia’ (Cyprus delights) are made and wander around the square with its local produce shops. From there, go to a small village, Letymbou, where you will visit Sophia’s traditional
house where you can see rooms with the original furniture and decor as well as traditional costumes. Learn
how village bread are baked in the clay oven and makes other local delicacies such as the traditional halloumi cheese. Afterwards, have a special Cypriot breakfast prepared by Sophia with village style bread and coffee or tea (breakfast included in the price).
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.
On the way back to Paphos, visit a local winery where you will be guided through the wine production and have the chance to taste the different wines.
