Germasogeia Walks / Discover the Natural Area of Germasogeia

The Lemesos (Limassol) village of Germasogeia offers two guided tours by bus and foot on alternating weeks.

The first tour of ‘A Village Blessed by Water’ takes in the historical architecture of the area, through narrow streets with stops at various significant churches. It also showcases the village’s important element of water by taking in the dam of Germasogeia, which is fed by the river Amathos that comes from the mountains of Troodos.

The second walk of ‘Discover the Natural Environment of Germasogeia’ takes in the natural environment of the area with a stroll through the countryside and hills to look at the indigenous flora and fauna, as well as a ride on an old village Bedford bus. Sights include a valley of rich vegetation, including citrus, olive and carob groves, and a walk through the Forestry Department’s nature trail with magnificent views of the dam and river.
