The Olive Tree Bridge is one of the oldest bridges to allow medieval travelers to cross 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 points on the same route. This was the main bridge in the area, until a newer one was built in 1958 that was suitable for vehicles as well.
