There's more to Cyprus than sea and sand. In the Troodos mountains you can discover cool resorts and picturesque villages, Byzantine monasteries and churches perched on rocky peaks or hiding away in fragrant valleys.

Dozens of vineyards dot the foothills of the range producing some the finest wines you could care to taste. The climate here is ideal for producing grapes and wines have been made here since ancient times. Commandaria, the oldest named wine in the world, was enjoyed by Richard the Lionheart, who married his bride Berengaria in Lemesos. You will find a warm welcome in the small tavernas in any of the hundreds of villages on the island.
