One of the ancient and charming bridges of mountainous Cyprus, is what one can find in the village of Trimiklini.

The bridge is constructed in the Kouris river bank, in a location of amazing natural beauty. It is comprised of 3 consecutive arches, from were the connection between Paphos district, Kalo Chorio, Lefkara village, and Nicosia was located.

According to local tradition folk tradition, the story of the bridge is connected to that of the route followed by the Byzantine Empress, St. Helen herself (though her presence on the island precedes the bridge by several centuries) as she set off from Stavrovouni and crossed over the bridge, transporting the Holy Cross and Holy Rope to the ancient monastery of the Holy Cross, in Kouka village and Omodos.
