Prodromos - Panagia tou Kykkou monastery E4 Long Distance Trail
This is an area of unique natural beauty. On the outskirts of the village of Agios Dimitrios at Agios Georgios Kapourallis (alt.1.100 metres), there are catering and accommodation establishments as well as sites of cultural interest, such as Agios Dimitrios Church. The route passes along a forest road, parallel to the Foini - AgiosDimitrios - Lemythou road and enters Pafos (Paphos) Forest, offering splendid views of the Diarizos River valley and continues to the traditional village of Kaminaria (alt.1.100 metres), an optional resting and re-supply stop. Before entering the village of Kaminaria, ramblers may choose to follow the path leading to the Venetian bridges along the Diarizos valley. There are four churches on the outskirts of the village dating to the16th and 17th centuries – the Church of Agios Vasilios, the Church of Panagia tis Kardiovastazousas, the Church of Agios Georgios and the Church of Agios Ermolaos. After Kaminaria, the route reaches the Komitizi picnic site (alt.1.000 meters), where one can rest, fill up with fresh drinking water and enjoy the beauty of the Platys River valley. The path then leads to the picturesque village of Milikouri (alt. 1.200 metres) where in spring the smell of roses fills the air. The area is well known for its rose water that the area’s inhabitants have been producing for centuries. The path passes over the village and reaches Kykkos (alt. 1.400 metres), some 100 metres from the monastery. The monastery, the only historical monument in the Pafos Forest, houses a very interesting museum of Byzantine art and a winery.
