A brief description of Prodromos village.
 
 
Prodromos is built at an altitude of 1400m and is the highest village in Cyprus. It is named after St. John the Baptist (Prodromos in Greek). The best cherries in Cyprus are produced in Prodromos and people believe that this is because Holy Mary Trikoukkiotisa who has her monastery in the area blesses the village. Although today lies in ruins, the Beregaria Hotel which once hosted the rich and famous remains a landmark in Prodromos. The hotel was named after Beregaria, the bride of Richard the Lionheart, whom he married in Cyprus.
 

What to see?

Holy Mary Trikoukkiotisa: is located at the south entrance of the village (when coming from Lemithou, turn right at the T-Junction). Visiting hours are between 9:00 to 13:00 and between 15:00 to 16:00
