Location

Pera, Nicosia, Cyprus

The village preserves its traditional character presenting quite a number of listed -well restored - houses, a picturesque central square where cultural events and festivals take place, three remarkable old churches and two cultural centres.
Pera Oreinis has a population of 1250 inhabitants, it is 400 m. above sea level and it is built by the Pedhieos river bank, which is dry most time of the year. Alongside the river there are picturesque nature trails and bicycle routes.
Pera Oreinis is situated near Tamassos dam, which is about one hour walking distance across the Pedhieos river bank. The village lies at the foot of the Machairas mountains. Its walks on the fantastic nature trails of the Machairas mountains offer spectacular views over Nicosia and across to the coastal hills.
The village is 15km from the capital city of Nicosia (Lefkosia in Greek), 48 km from the beautiful beaches of Maroni – Zygi area, 2.5 km from Monastery of Saint Herakleidios [8th century AC] and 16km from the Machairas monastery [12th century AC], which is in second position in terms of prestige in Cyprus. The Metropolis of Tamassos and Oreinis is one of the oldest dioceses of Cyprus, as the first bishop of Saint Herakleidios ordained by the apostles Barnabas and Paul in the year 45 AD.
Pera Oreinis is seven minutes’ drive (3.4 km) from the archaeological site of Tamassos which was one of the most important city kingdoms of Cyprus. The site has unearthed the temple of Aphrodite, two majestic royal tombs, as well as several smaller ones. The site has unearthed also part of the city’s fortifications and copper-processing installations, whilst excavations have also brought to light copper workshops associated with Aphrodite - Astarte and six oversized limestone statues dating back to the 6th century BC, when Cyprus was under Egyptian rule.
