This beautiful picturesque village according to tradition, got its name from a Holy Alsos (grove) of Goddess Aphrodite where the village is now located. . Kallena Botanic Garden is at an altitude of 900 meters in “Kallena” location, where we reach the organic cultivation of 20 different fragrant and therapeutic plants. The European type distilleries produce exceptional essential oils.
It is well known for its annual Grape feast to celebrate its harvest, the village demonstrates local traditional delicacies, like the ones we are about to see today.
NATURE PATH ' 6 FOUNTAINS'
Omodos village, built at the slope of the mountain, between a verdant carpet of vines, surrounded by mountains that appear as though they were placed in a masterly layout, is one of the most picturesque villages of Cyprus.
The large plaza of the village, with the tiny quaint houses, the tiled roofs and the paved flowery yards, only begin to describe its beauty. The wooden doors and the variously decorated gateways in the narrow alleys, all “drowned” in green, lend a special beauty and charm to the village.
Time for a walk in the colorful cobblestoned square, surrounded by coffee houses, taverns and shops where home handicraft flourishes., The wonderful handmade brocades, tablecloths, threaded quilts, the narrow-knit and Chantilly laces as well as the traditional products, decorate the village.
