Experience Rural & Nature The beautiful Skarfos medieval bridge

The beautiful Skarfos medieval bridge

The Skarfos Medieval bridge is a small stoned-built bridge locate at Simou village in Paphos district.
If you are interested in history or you are a nature and photographer lover then this is worth visiting.

It was built some time between the late 1400 and mid 1500s by the Venetians who ruled at that time. It was originally the main route from Paphos to Polis crossing over the Stavros tis Psokas river but over time the river has changed its course and now flows, albeit a small burn , to the north of the bridge.

Nearby are the remains of the old Skarfos watermill and Evretos Dam which also worth a visit .
