Limassol  - Agros Village
A spring in the village is also used for the major brand of Agros bottled water that is widely available on the island.

There are several nature trails around the village that are just waiting to be explored and the village is popular with those on walking holidays to Cyprus. Like many Cypriot villages Agros is characterized by its narrow streets, dilapidated buildings and the church of the Virgin Mary which lies at the heart of the village.

You can make Agros village part of a day trip to the Troodos mountain region on your Cyprus holiday, providing that you have a hire car or you can even find accommodation in the form of the Rodon Hotel, a three star hotel that is located on the outskirts of the village.

So enjoy your time in Troodos and on the island of Cyprus soaking up Cypriot village life!
Another great day out whilst on your Cyprus holiday is Agros village. The village like many of the more traditional villages on the island lies on the Troodos foothills, about 45 minutes drive from both Limassol  and Nicosia, and approximately 20 minutes drive from Troodos square.

Agros village is at an elevation of about 1100 hundred meters, just above the snow line, which often makes the village look like a picture postcard around Christmas time. The village of Agros is most famous for being the village of the Roses, as it is located in the valley of the Roses. In the village there is a factory that produces a whole range of rose flavoured and scented products including candles, soaps, wine as well as the famous rose water.

There are several other local Cypriot specialties made in the village of Agros, including the local meat factory that produces Lountza (smoked ham) Hiromeri (smoked ham) Loukanika (spicy sausage) and Pastourmas (spicy sausage). Another factory shop in the village is especially suited to those with a sweet tooth as it makes Glyko, which are fruits preserved in a sugar syrup. The most famous Glyko is walnut, but other varieties include cherry, orange, fig and apricot glyko.
