Gerovasa is an abandoned village nestled in the far reaches of the Diarizos Valley. At first glance it isn't very substantial. From the road, only a few ruins are visible. But if you take a walk through the trees you will see that there used to be quite a sizeable neighbourhood here. Just make sure you visit at the right time of year...

A Familiar Bridge


Let's start here. This is a fine example of a British Built Bailey Bridge, and it is a lot more stable than it looks! It is situated just above Gerovasa. If you continue up the road here you get to Trozena. This is another abandoned village we blogged about some time ago.

View From Trozena


We took this shot from the church in Trozena. You can see some of the ruins of Gerovasa from here. As I said already though, it doesn't look like there are more than a couple of buildings.

Let's Have A Map


Here's a satellite shot of the village, courtesy of Google. You can see a few more ruins here, but even so it doesn't look much.

At The Village

Lots of Green


This is a shot of the same track taken back in the Spring. As you can see, it is a bit overgrown.

Trozena Waterfall

When we visited Trozena last May, we read about a mysterious waterfall. Mysterious because though we could see remnants of an old stream in a picnic area between the village and the church, there was no waterfall at all. But then it rained. A lot. And somebody said there was a waterfall at Trozena. So we went and had a look. If you see one water feature after all the rains, you should make sure it is this one. It is spectacular...

Abandoned Villages - Trozena

If you've driven over the iron bridge which lies just beyond the abandoned village of Gerovasa, near the outskirts of Paphos Forest, then you will also have driven past the abandoned village of Trozena. Unless you are very observant, you won't have noticed it though, as it is barely visible from the road. It is worth taking a detour to explore the ruins, as these photos will hopefully show...
