Lefkara village is very famous for its traditional lace. Nowadays, the village is a tourist attraction, with is a stone-build traditional houses and small shop where you can buy lace and traditional Cyprus products. A common sight is groups of women who sit in the narrow village streets working on their fine embroidery, as they have for centuries. The village is also known for its skilled silversmiths who produce fine filigree work, and there is a small Turkish Delight factory. A folklore museum in the town shows visitors what life was like in Cyprus a hundred years ago. The museum is located in a restored house and exhibits the furniture and effects of a wealthy family, local costumes and examples of the Lefkara lacewor.
Kakopetria is a beautiful, traditional village located 55 kilometers southwest of the capital, Nicosia, on the foothills of the Troodos Mountain. It stands at an altitude of 667 metres and it is the highest village in the Solea Valley. It is surrounded by thick forestland and is built on the banks of the Kargotis and Garillis Rivers. The two rivers join within village itself and form the river Klarios. You will walk near the river and visit the old Kakopetria area, with the stone paved roads and the well-maintained traditional Cyprus houses.
Trodos located in the center of the island. Troodos' highest peak is Mount Olympus at 1,952 meters which also hosts 4 ski slopes. The Troodos mountain range stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus. There are many famous mountain resorts, Byzantine monasteries and churches on mountain peaks, and nestling in its valleys and picturesque mountains are villages clinging to terraced hill slopes. The area has been known since ancient times for its mines, and in the Byzantine period it became a great centre of Byzantine art, as churches and monasteries were built in the mountains, away from the threatened coastline.
