Pegeia: Byzantine Marvels
Pegeia, perched on a hillside overlooking the sea, is known for the fountains in its picturesque village square, a beautiful construction with typical arches, where women used to meet in days gone by in order to wash their clothes and fetch water. The village itself is renowned for its spectacular views, while the coastline below has one of the best sandy beaches of the Pafos region at Coral Bay, which each year is awarded with a Blue Flag for its bathing water quality.
Perched on a hillside overlooking the sea, Pegeia's cultural treasures will stimulate the mind.
If you love culture and history, stop off at the church of Agios Georgios and admire some superb examples of Byzantine art in the form of a 6th century basilica complex with extensive panels of geometric and animal floor mosaics, rare in Christian iconography. Or visit Maa-Paleokastro, the site, on a peninsula near Coral Bay, where the Mycenaean Greeks first landed in Cyprus in the Bronze Age.
