Geroskipou Village



The name Geroskipou derives from the classical Greek "Hieros Kipos" meaning "Sacred Garden". It is believed that in ancient times it used to be an extensive area of beautiful gardens, dedicated to the goddess Aphrodite. Today the gardens have been replaced by the modern village renowned for its "Cyprus delights" sweets. Geroskipou is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural Route.

Geroskipou has much to offer the visitor and a pleasant morning or afternoon can be spent visiting the local attractions. The village also has a good selection of shops on the main street, from Turkish Delight to basket ware and ceramics.
