"A Popular Wine Producing Picturesque Village" Vasa by greekcypriot
Vasa Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 34 photos
Vasa is the fifth wine-producing village just 35 kms away from Limassol. It is found on the slope of the Troodos range.
Its name is linked to the ancient Greek word “Vassa or Vissa” meaning woody valley.
Nowadays the residents are only 120.
The first settlers of the village are said to have come from the Peloponnese in Greece coming from ancient Arcadia.
It is a very beautiful village with locals trying to keep their authentic traditions, restoring their old houses, and growing tourism in their village.
I have found very hospitable people, and seen the Greek flag waving in many house gardens which was a joyful surprise for me.
There are two very significant caves in Vasa, -the cave of two apostles which I give more information in the tips.
There are two or three local restaurants in the village, and I highly recommend it to people who want to feel the authentic Cypriot hospitality, people who are interested in visiting ancient churches and museums, and Agro tourism in general.
I have more info in the tips.
- Pros:A Beautiful village not to be missed!
