The Village of Palaichori
Greek: Παλαιχώρι – Situated in the mountainous Pitsilia region of Troodos, Palaichori (Sometimes spelt Palechori, Palekhori) is a large village with old and new generations. Palaichori has a rich history, unique character, growing infrastructure and is popular with local and international travellers.
Just 40km from Nicosia you will find yourself in the picturesque mountainous area of Pitsilia in the serene village of Palaichori. As you drive in you will feel a sense of refreshment from the cool and calm weather as you breath in the fresh and crisp ‘drosia’ Palaichori air.
Palaichori’s Long & Rich History
You will feel the deep and rich culture and history, that some say goes back 700 years. You can see this in the old yet graceful churches and many houses and the older traditional generations that were born around 1915.
