In the foothills of the Troodos Mountains, Patsilia is renowned for its fine wines, honey, and cheeses. There are a couple of wine routes in the area and this is a fun way to explore the countryside and hop from town to town. There are four noteworthy Byzantine Churches in the area which have been jointly declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area is beautiful, heavily forested, and mountainous, making it enticing for hikers. Known as the 'Orchard of Cyprus' due to its wealth of fruit, one of the best times to visit the region is in spring when everything is in bloom.

Address: 19 miles (30 kms) outside of Limassol
