Tangerines Villages Tour
Route No.5 - Dierona - Arakapas - Ag.Konstantinos -
Arakapas - Eptagonia - Kellaki - Prastio - Dierona (47.3 Km)
This route starts from Dierona, a beautiful village very close to Limassol city. Going down towards Arakapa you can enjoy the incredible view of the valley.
In Arakapa and before you start to climb towards Agios Pavlos, you can see the church of Panagia Lamatika, built in 1882, as well as the small church of Panagia, the only part preserved from the ancient monastery.
The climb to Agios Pavlos is easier by crossing the tangerine trees, whose branches almost enter the road, so close that they challenge you to touch them.
On the route from Agios Pavlos and Agios Konstantinos there are benches where you can rest and enjoy the wonderful view towards the pine-covered mountain and the plain with tangerine trees.
Returning through Arakapa, you will reach Eptagonia before going up towards Kellaki. Because of the uphill, it would be good to rest a bit in the center of Eptagonia, enjoying a Cypriot coffee and traditional sweets!
Arriving in Kellaki, and after heading towards Prastio, you can enjoy not only the view towards the sea of Limassol but alsothe beauty of the mountain and the peak of Kionia which reaches 1410 m.
Finally, you will still need some strength to climb the small uphill before you reach Dierona where your route ends.
