Abandoned Villages - Trimithousa
While doing some research for the blog on the Abandoned Village of Evretou, I read how the villagers fled to the nearby village of Trimithousa, before eventually settling in the North. From this I deduced that Trimithousa itself might also be abandoned. So I looked it up on Google Maps, and decided to check it out...
The View From Above
This picture is a bit of a cheat, because we actually took it at the end of our visit. However, it shows where everything is in relation to each other, so it makes more sense to put it first.
We approached Trimithousa from Evretou. For a while we thought we had taken a wrong turn, as we couldn't see anything. However, after we narrowly avoided a boy racer in a jeep, we spied the tops of some buildings in the distance and knew we were nearby.
In this picture, you can see the white mosque with the red roof to the right, and the water feature on the middle left.
Incidently, the Paphos Life Directory is now active, with two categories. Nearly all the locations featured in our blogs can be located using the Paphos Life Blog category.
A Big House
In the first picture, this building is just above the middle and slightly to the left. It is besides the main track (now at least).
Trimithousa High St
The other tracks through Trimithousa are a lot more overgrown than this.
An Interesting Fireplace
As we drove down the High St, I couldn't help but notice this rather interesting fireplace.
Trimithousa is Overgrown!
We couldn't do much exploring, as the undergrowth was so thick.
