Agros village

agros village limassol

Located in the Troodos mountain range, in the Pitsilia area of the Lemesos (Limassol) district, Agros sits at an altitude of 1.100 metres. The village can be reached from Lemesos by following the route B8 (from the roundabout of Polemidia), then the E801, and the F948 thereafter.

Built amphitheatrically among the mountains, Agros is nestled in stunning environs of panoramic forest views, making it ideal for agrotourism. It has maintained its traditional character and customs and grows a variety of fruits and vegetables.

The village is famous for its cultivation of roses, along with its production of cured meats (sausages, ‘Lountza’ and ‘Hiromeri’), homemade marmalades and sweets. Visitors can see these traditional practises at the workshops where rose oil distillation, sweet making and meat production take place.

The village’s name comes from the 40 monks who arrived in Cyprus from Asia Minor during the iconoclastic period, and named it after the place they had left behind, ‘Megas Agros’. They built a monastery at the spot where the Church of Panagia of Agros is found today.
