Fyti village

Located in the Pafos (Paphos) region, at an average altitude of 680 metres, the village of Fyti has existed since Medieval Times and preserves its traditional folkloric architecture and local handicrafts, including that of weaving. Just 25 km northeast of Pafos and 20 km southeast of Polis Chrysochous, Fyti can be reached by following the B07 route and then the E712.

As the main weaving centre of the Pafos region, the hand-woven pieces are known locally as ‘fythkiotika’, and are distinguished both for the variety of their patterns and their rich and vibrant colours. The village’s Museum of Traditional Weaving showcases this custom, and is one of its main places of interest.

Other interesting sights include a series of traditional fountains, and the church of Agios Demetrios, which is located in the village square and features a beautiful, well-preserved 19th century altar screen.
