Diarizos Valley

Diarizos Valley is located southwest of the Troodos mountain range, within the Paphos district of Cyprus.  It's named after the Diarizos River, which runs through the valley.


The delightful drive through the Diarizos Valley is primarily the countryside and various villages, including Nikokleia Village, Fasoula Village, Mamonia Village, Agios Georgios Village, Kadasi Village, Kedares Villages, Filousa Village, Arminou Village, Mesana Village, Salamiou Village, Kelokedara Village, Stavrokonnou Village, Choletria Village, etc.


Within the Diarizos Valley, there are several places of interest, such as older (possibly Venetian) bridges, monasteries (including Salamiotissis Monastery and Agios Savvas tis Karonos Monastery), and churches (including Agios Demetrios Church and Agios Mama Church), as well as the the second largest dam in Cyprus (Asprokremmos Dam).



Since the road through the Diarizos Valley continues along in a rough circle-type fashion, it's possible to start and end the drive near Asprokremmos Dam.
