Skarinou: it is a small village, built on the main road between Nicosia, Limassol and Larnaca. It is known as the station. The station has been renovated and many restaurants have opened there. In the station you can see the ruins of the building where AKEL (political party) has made its first convention on 14/4/1941. AKEL has recently bought the building and decided to restore it in order to make it a historic sight. 

Skarinou is built on the foothill of the mountain chain of Lefkara. It is a beautiful village that will amaze you. The fantastic view of the sea attracts many tourists and visitors. It is considered as one of the most beautiful and tranquil village of the island. It is full of olive trees and locust trees and it is characterized by the traditional architecture of the houses. 

The inhabitants of the village are mainly farmers and they also sell their unique, traditional canvas in Cyprus and abroad. A small industry of traditional sweets has been created recently in a renovated building. 

Due to its perfect climate, its natural beauty and the hospitality of the inhabitants, the village was developed in a great level. New tourist units have been constructed and many houses have been renovated according the traditional architecture. Around 25 renovated houses are rent to the tourists that visit the village. We hope that very soon, we will give the opportunity to anyone who wants to stay in the village, to reserve a room via Internet. 

Some traditional taverns have been recently built, a traditional restaurant called “MILOS”. In the yard of this restaurant there is a traditional old mill. There are also many little shops where you can find the traditional canvas, and another shop where you can taste the amazing Cypriot sweets. As you enter in the village you will see the Cooperative Bank and a big supermarket.
