Ktima Gerolemo: at the heart of the island's wine industry
Undisputedly, Omodos village is the wine capital of Cyprus, surrounded by several wineries and their vineyards covering the mountain tops such as Afames and Kremnos of Laona. Not far from Limassol and built on the west bank of Cha-potami, Omodos is buzzing every day with visitors from all over the world. They come to admire its large plaza, the Monastery of the Holy Cross, the medieval Wine Press and walk aimlessly around the narrow alleys and the stone houses. Above all, visitors, enjoy its tasty grapes and great wine that, as tradition says was the cause for the island being conquered by the inebriate Sultan Selem II.
