Alley in Kakopetria village, Cyprus

A walk in the alleys of Kakopetria

As I mentioned in other posts Kakopetria village is a  place we love visiting.

The architecture of the village is wonderful, especially the old Kakopetria. It is a picturesque village built between two rivers and it  is a magnet to every form of artists. Walking through the narrow stone-paved alleys of the old quarter of the village you can find a lot of things to capture.

Most of the old houses have been restored. Their characteristic feature is that the majority of the houses have two floors, sloped and tiled roofs with beautiful wooden balconies.

The main reason that the old quarter of the village preserved its traditional architecture, is the fact, that it has been proclaimed as a protected area from the Department of Antiquities of Cyprus.
