Platres Village

Platres Village is located about 5 km from Troodos Village in the Troodos Mountains, within the Limassol district of Cyprus.  It's actually divided into two village: Pano Platres and Kato Platres.
 


Pano Platres (or Upper Platres) is known as a tourist resort, while Kato Platres (or Lower Platres) is considered smaller and more residential.

Platres is an older village, and it most likely even existed during the Lusignan Era and Venetian Era.  When the British controlled Cyprus, Platres started to become a tourist location, particularly after 1878.  Today, it's still a popular area for tourists.

Since Platres Village is a common tourist stop, it's a nice mountain village to explore for tourists, particularly Pano Platres Village.
