Famed as one of the prettiest villages on the island, and well known for its delectable local produce, Omodos is one of those villages you’ll want to visit over and over again. With its central village square always forming a hub of activity, and home to some of the best taverns on the island, visitors from near and far also flock to the area to visit the Monastery of the Holy Cross.
To get better acquainted with the history of the area, look no further than Socrates Traditional House, located in the backstreets of the village, and home to eclectic assortment of exhibits and furnishings, including historic wine presses, wedding dresses, old black and white photos, looms, a corn mill and typical village furniture.
Owned by lovely local folk, the quirky little place was once a village home that dates back hundreds of years, and the owners today are mighty proud of all the paraphernalia that has been passed down through the centuries, with all rooms packed with items that bring tradition to life.
What’s more, you can get hold of traditional produce here to take home with you, including creams made from nutritious donkey milk (yes, that’s right!), local wine, herbs for tea and more.
