Pafos 1 – Pafos Castle – Agia Varvara – Episkopi – Tsada – Armou- Agia varvara – Pafos Castle Cycling Route

Starting your ride at Pafos town, you will soon leave the city noise behind you and you will find yourself riding along orange and lemon tree groves! The route continues through Agia Varvara all the way to Episkopi village. There are excellent views along the way but the most impressive view is from the “Rock” on which the village church devoted Saint Ilarion the Great, is built. From this point, you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Ezousa Valley below as well as taking in the beauty of nature itself. The Ezousa Valley is one of the most beautiful valleys of Cyprus. Due to its high ecological value, it has been included in the European network of protected areas NATURA 2000.

In Episkopi you can also visit the Environmental Information Centre.

Moving on, you will ascend to the highest point of the area. From this particular point, visibility extends to the Pafos forest and the mountain range of Troodos.

The return route is easier as it is mostly downhill.
