Excursion highlight:

Botanical garden in Avgorou: consists of nine wonderful botanical gardens, a forest in which hundreds of cypress trees form the island of Cyprus, and also the first and only labyrinth in Cyprus. The botanical garden is divided into 9 sections, each with a different theme. As you enjoy your walk you will see plants related to these themes. Herbs have multiple actions and uses and you will see some of them in different sections, e.g. thyme is useful in the bath but also as an aromatic and as a spice.

 

Liopetri Barn: A stone-built ground floor house, part of which was also used as a barn, on the southeastern edge of the village of Liopetri. It belonged to the farmer Panagiotis Kallis. On this property, a great battle took place on September 2, 1958, between English troops and four EOKA fighters.
