About

Stavros tis Psokas

In the green forest of Paphos, on the slope that dominates the valley of Agios Theodoros, a small chapel is found, dedicated to Timios Stavros. It is a basilica, with a wooden roof.

A few hundreds of metres away the Forestry station of Stavros tis Psokas is found, as well as the picnic area with the same name.



About

Gialia

Gialia is situated in between Argaka and Agia Marina and some of the village is actually within the Paphos Forest.

The village got its name from the river Gialias which passes through the village and it starts in the middle of the mountains behind all the way down to the beach and cuts the built up area of the village in half.

The two main attractions to the village, which many people do not know about, are the Georgian Monastery and the watermill.
