The Olive Tree Bridge, is one of the oldest bridges that allowed travelers of the Middle Ages to cross the trade routes from one end of Cyprus to the other.

This particular bridge dates back to the 16the century. It is a steep, stone-built bridge, with a narrow passage, that could just about accommodate pedestrians and their animals. The Finiotis River flows below its arch, before joining with the Diarizos River.

It is therefore no coincidence that the construction of this bridge bears many similarities with the much larger Tzielefos Bridge, as they are both parts of the same route. This was the main bridge in the area, until a more recent one was built in 1958, that was suitable for vehicles as well.
