Trooditissa Picnic Site

* 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.

This is one of the largest and most beautiful picnic sites one may find in the mountainous region of Limassol, as well as in Cyprus overall. The stream that passes through the site, nurturing the enormous plane trees that have been providing the area with shade for centuries, creates images reminiscent of fairy tales.

The picnic site is located on the Platres-Troodos road, just before the monastery of the same name. At an altitutude of 1300 meters, with a refreshing breeze that fills the air with the aromas of the plane and pine trees, this space can host approximately 700 visitors. There are areas suitable for lighting a fire, as well as fountains with fresh water direct from the source.

The majestic tree trunks and the impressive stones covered in moss, the wooden footbridges, the kiosks and the stone-built water fountains, as well as the sound of the babbling stream all help create an alluring atmosphere. This idyllic scene is one of the main reasons that this space attracts thousands of visitors all year round.


It is just one of the 2 picnic sites that border the monastery of Trooditissa. The other is just after the monastery, near Prodromos, and it is called 'Kambi tou Kalogirou.
