Abandoned Villages: Alevga

Published 31st of January, 2020

Alevga was abandoned as a result of the Battle of Tillyria in 1964. Nestled close to the border with the Occupied Area, it now lies in ruins save for barns which have been used by nearby farmers. We took a look over the remains of what must have once been a beautiful little village...

Across The Valley


We actually start our blog in a different abandoned village. This shot was taken on the other side of the valley, in what remains of Selladi tou Appi. We start here because you can get a nice shot of Alevga from this angle. Any closer and the trees get in the way.

So the other day we returned with our camera. This is what we found...

The Pomos Coast

Pomos is quite a trip from Paphos, but it is most definitely worth it. We were up that way to visit some abandoned villages and overflowing reservoirs this week, but stopped to take in the coast along the way. The countryside up there is breathtaking, and well worth a visit. Here's a short selection of what to expect.
