A village fit for a postcard

This weekend, get out and about in the fresh air and enjoy a walk along the lanes and around the courtyards in the picturesque village of Lania.

Every year the Women of Lania organise the event and, for the past 11 years, many visitors have enjoyed the walks and activities the organisers put together.

The events kick off on Saturday with a photography exhibition by the Limassol branch of the Cyprus Photography Society and an art exhibition by students of the Lania Workshop of Orestes Rizopoulos at 11am until 6pm.

At noon you can enjoy some music and traditional dances. Andreas Moditis will be on the violin, Christakis Markou will take up the lute and the singing will be done by Neophytos Armeftis. The dancing will be courtesy of the Dionyssos School of Dance.

Sunday starts at 4.15pm with some more dancing from Trimiklini Double Bridge Dance Group, some poetry read out by pupils from the Trimiklini primary school, and then music from the band The Goldfinches, Michalis Vryonis on the violin and Prodromos Stylianou on the lute.

The Women of Lania have kindly provided some directions so no one gets lost.

From the motorway in Limassol, take the B8 towards Troodos. After approximately 20 minutes, you will see the sign to Lania on your right. Drive half a kilometre up the hill. Park at the car-park on your left before you enter the village.

You will know you’re entering the village when you see the old fountain from which the villagers would get their drinking water.
