The Picturesque Village of Palaichori

Palaichori is a very beautiful and picturesque village in the Troodos range at a hight of 900 metres above sea lever.
The village has many beautiful churches and a couple of museums, but the most important of all is to see the hideout of Grigoris Afxentiou.

This great hero was a true patriot, giving his life for the liberation of Cyprus from British colonial rule.

I have the pleasure of meeting Mr. Andrea and Maritsa Karaoli, the people who offered refuge to Afxentiou. They have given their house to the Council of Historic Memory of the Struggle 1955-59 (EOKA).

I have a thread below with the history and all details about this great hero who was a true patriot, giving his life for the liberation of Cyprus from British colonial rule.


The Cypriot Hero, Grigoris Afxentiou

Grigoris Afxentiou the Cypriot Hero found refuge in this village.
I have more information included in this guide, as well as many pictures that I have taken in my recent trip there.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A real gem in the Troodos Mountains
  • Cons:I cannot find a single con to write down.
  • In a nutshell:More than just a gem. I believe besides tourists, every single Greek or Cypriot should visit this beautiful and so interesting historic village.
