a story of many centuries
Administratively part of the province of Limassol and ecclesiastically part of the Holy Metropolis of Paphos, Prasteio is situated 40 kilometres west of the city of Limassol and 45 kilometres from Paphos. As a result of its proximity to the village of Avdimou, it is known as Prasteio (Avdimou). From the south, one can see the coastal regions of Cyprus, while from the north, one can see the mountainous regions. The village is located 380 metres above sea level. Due to the village’s soil composition, seasonal vegetation, grains, several carob trees, and olives were cultivated. Today, the inhabitants’ activities have diminished significantly, but Prasteio remains an agricultural region.
