* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

In the heart of the Moniatis community in the Limassol mountains, there is a green path. The linear Daphne – Zaraes – Mazokambos path starts from the medival church of Archangel Michael and reaches the area of Mazokambos, on the Moniatis – Platres road.

In the first 500 meters, the path crosses a stream that ends up in the Kouris River. Pedestrians will cross the wooden bridge and move north, towards the old olive mill and the former Turkish Cypriot quarter. As they leave behind the little streets of the village, the museum and a stone bridge, they will ascend upon a route with lush vegetation.

The route, which covers a total of approximately 3 kilometers, is uphill, but it’s worth it for the wonderful images and aromas of trees and herbs found in the natural environment of Cyprus.
