Constructed during the 16th century, ‘The Bishop’s Bridge’ is now one of the 15 medieval bridges in Limassol that have now been recognized as archaeological treasures of the district. This bridge is located in the Vines area in Fini village, which is known for its wild, bushy flora, thanks to the water of the river which crosses through slopes.

The Bishop’s Bridge, according to tradition, was named after the bishops of Agioi Anargyroi, who supposedly used this bridge to cross through the area on their way to Paphos. The bridge has an 8.9-meter arch and is 2.4 meters wide. It is built with roughly carved white limestone.

Under the bridge passes the Diarizos River, one of the largest in Cyprus, the source of which is in Fini village and which ends at the Paphos coast (near Kouklia, the village of Aphrodite). This stream meets with the stream of Kaminaria village, at the Olive Tree Bridge, and ends at Arminou dam and then at Kouris dam.
