Welcome to Agros
Situated at 1100m in a cool valley cradled by the surrounding mountains, Agros is an appealing village with its distinctive red roofs and feeling of remoteness. Well placed for hiking and driving forays into the surrounding hills, Agros is renowned in the region for its locally made rose products, including rose water and Cypriot delight; it also specialises in preserved fruit and traditional Cypriot meats, such as loukanika (spiced sausages) and lountza (smoked pork fillet). As such, most of the activity centres on its traditional warehouses and workshops. Agros makes an excellent base for exploring the surrounding region.
The village was named after the Monastery of Great Agros, which was built at the spot where the Church of Panayia of Agros is found today after the monastery was devastated by fire in 1894.
