If you have ever driven up to the Troodos through the wind farms above Kouklia, you will have passed through Archimandrita. You probably drove straight through, as it is only the start of your journey. Next time, set off an hour or two earlier and allow yourself time to explore this little jewel...
As you approach Archimandrita from Kouklia, you will come to a parking area here. There is another spot further up though, so if you want to save a bit of walking, carry on up the hill.
The Village On The Hill
Our second Road Trip will be going through Archimandrita. On the road trips I don't dwell too long on individual villages. They would just get too big if I did that. However, I've been meaning to blog about this village for over a year now, so I figured I would cover it before I got down to the road trip itself.
So, what is so special about Archimandrita then? Well, this signpost points to one of the attractions. If you are still in your car, you can follow this road. It is quite narrow, so you may want to park here instead. But lets go up and visit the Cave of 318 fathers.
On your way, you can look at the nice murals here...
