Tzelefos Bridge

Local name: Γιοφύρι Του Τζελεφού

Gefiri tou Tzelefou, or the Tzelefos Bridge, is considered one of the most picturesque places in Cyprus. It is one of several so-called "Venetian bridges" in Cyprus, dating from the period of Venetian rule on the island in the years 1489-1571. The Tzelefos Bridge is also the largest stone bridge built in Cyprus.

The Tzelefos Bridge connects the two banks of the Diarizos River and is located at an altitude of 440 meters above sea level in an area covered with very dense and lush vegetation. The region also has other well-preserved historic stone bridges that connect the hiking trail.

This area is popular with both tourists and Cypriots, especially during the summer heat because it offers shade and rest from the hot sun. Nature lovers especially like this place because of the unique vegetation and different animal species living here.
