Hosting cultural events and festivities.

The village of Pomos is located next to the sea, in the geographical district of Tillyria, 15 kilometres northeast of Polis. The village was named “Pomos” during the medieval years and was actually marked as “Pomo” in old maps. The village is considered to have Greek origin from the word vomos, meaning altar. In fact, it is possible that during antiquity there was a temple of a goddess with a famous altar, possibly Aphrodite.

In the area citrus fruit, bananas, avocados, olive trees, almond trees, walnut trees and some vegetables are grown, but there are also many uncultivated pieces of land which are covered by natural vegetation such as pine trees and thyme.

There are many beautiful places in the village which are worth seeing.

The picturesque nature of the mountains and the sea create and idyllic atmosphere, but people have also added their touch making it a very unique village. The pathway that starts from the neighbouring village of Nea Dimmata and leads to the Pomos cape is one of the most graphical pathways in Cyprus as the steep slopes of the mountain, covered in pine trees, nearly fall vertically on the sea. A part of the Paphos forest, towards the north of the village falls in the borders of Pomos.

Pomos is a quiet and beautiful village. A quaint harbour where the local fishermen still go out every morning to supply fish to the local restaurants. 

The Monastery of Panagia is located a short drive from Pomos. The monastery was founded during the first half of the 10 century A.D by the king of Georgia David the third Kouropalati and was under the protection of all the kingdoms of Georgia, creating a dynamic development centre of Georgian civilisation in Cyprus. It was a very rich monastery that operated a great copying manuscript workshop.
