* 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.

Just 150 meters south of Troodos Square is the start of one of the most magical and welcoming trails that cross through the pine forest. At an altitude of 1700 meters, the Persefoni Nature Trail is perfect for calming walks throughout the year.

One of the trail's most impressive spots is located approximately 1 meter from the start, in an area covered by tall, dense pine trees that allow wild ferns to cover the ground like a carpet, creating a mystical atmosphere. 

The trail is 3 kilometers long and ends at the edge of the Makria Kontarka area, which offers captivating views all the way to the Limassol sea. 

Along the way, one can enjoy the view of the abandoned asbestos mine (there is a viewpoint with a bench for this purpose approximately 1.5 kilometers in).

Around 500 kilometers before its end, the trail crosses the forest road, allowing people to reach that point by car.
