The Paphos region
Paphos (Greek: ????? Páfos), sometimes spelt as Pafos, is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus and the capital of Paphos District. In antiquity, two locations were called Paphos: Old Paphos and New Paphos. The currently inhabited city is New Paphos. It lies on the Mediterranean coast, about 50 km (31.07 mi) west of the Limassol (the biggest port in island), which has an A6 highway connection. Paphos International Airport is the country's second largest airport.
Near Palaepaphos (Old Paphos) at the seaside of Petra tou Romiou is the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty and the founding myth is interwoven with the goddess at every level, so that Old Paphos became the most famous and important place for worshipping Aphrodite in the ancient world. In Greco-Roman times Paphos was the island's capital, and it is famous for the remains of the Roman governor's palace, where extensive, fine mosaics are a major tourist attraction. The apostle Paul of Tarsus visited the town during the 1st century AD. The town of Paphos is included in the official UNESCO list of cultural and natural treasures of the world's heritage.
Paphos enjoys a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate, with the mildest temperatures on the island. The typical summer's season lasts about 8 months, from April to November, although in March and December temperatures may also reach 20 °C (68.0 °F).
Paphos has been selected as the European Capital of Culture for 2017 along with Aarhus.
The village of Kathikas is situated 22 km from the town of Paphos, 14 km from Latchi and 12 km from Coral Bay. Kathikas sits at an elevation of 645 metres above sea level, which provides it with a good climate in the summer months. This is wine country and the area is famous for its vineyards and the excellent quality of its grapes. Several of the wineries welcome visitors.
Kathikas is a village full of life, energy and hospitality but still retains an old world character with its stone houses and the traditional way of life is much in evidence. The focal point of the village is the square where the main church “Panayia Evangelistria” with its beautiful murals is located. Surrounding the square are coffee shops and tavernas with constantly fresh vegetables, grilled dishes and homemade desserts. Apart from the main church the village also has two small chapels.
There are a couple of shops in the village selling basic groceries and household cleaning items, and a new bakery recently opened in the village of Stroumbi which is about a six-minute drive away. A hairdressing salon sits just off the village square.
The nearest doctors are in Peyia Village (10 minutes) and the closest hospital is in Polis (12 minutes).
The Akamas Peninsula, Lara Bay (turtle hatchery), Polis and the Baths of Aphrodite are all easily accessible from Kathikas, as is the Tsadha Golf Course which is approximately a 15-minute drive from the village.
Nearest main attractions are the natural Avakas Gorge and Peyia Zoo (www.pafoszoo.com)
The agricultural produce of the area are cereals, legumes, almonds, carob beans, fruit etc. The main product though, is grapes - mostly black, white and sultana grapes. There are other varieties as well, but in smaller quantities. In the old days all the villages were equipped with grape-presses and the villagers produced some quite good wines.
