Watermills of Kalopanayiotis, Marathasa valley, Nicosia

 Watermills of Kalopanayiotis 

It was a pleasure to visit Kalopanayiotis once more! A village with long history and tradition were you cannot stop admiring the things it has to offer.

Our first stop at our latest expedition was at one of the five watermills of Kalopanayiotis.

Located very near to the river, one can only go on foot to see the well restored watermill.

It is a fascinating construction, testament of the importance of the village as an economic and industrial centre at the area in the past.    

The watermill may not be in operation but its restorations give a clear picture to the visitors as to what were the tools and machinery used at the time to make flour!
