Introducing Pitsylia

The wide-reaching region of Pitsylia is the least visited and most remote part of the Troödos Massif. It stretches from the start of the E909, north of Troödos village, to the Maheras Monastery in the east. The northern slopes of Pitsylia are covered in tall, aromatic pines to the north, and vines grow here too.

A number of frescoed Byzantine churches are dotted around the region, and there are challenging walks for longer-distance hikers.

Pitsylia’s de facto centre is the sprawling, amphitheatrical village of Agros. Other villages are Kyperounda (population 1500), Platanistasa (population 170), Alona (population 130) and Palehori (population 410).
