Kissonerga  Cyprus  Resort

The village of Kissonerga has an ancient and rich history, as does many of the surrounding villages and the island in general. It is situated on the coast with a main large beach nearby but also plenty

It is hard to believe that this tranquil area is but a five minute drive away from the bustling resort of Kato Paphos with its plethora of restaurants, antiquities and busy night life. Less than 5 min drive in the other direction is the resort of Coral Bay with more restaurants and shops and most importantly with it child friendly sandy shallow beaches. If you don't wish to drive there is a frequent bus route that serves both resorts and all the areas in between.

Away from the coast road, Kissonerga village has a main street where there are restaurants, several mini-markets, a bank, two coffee shops (one of which also operates as a sub post office), a bookshop, florist, chemist, a couple of hairdressers, and more. There is also an internet caf, which, curiously enough, doesnt have an internet connection or any computers.

At the far end of the main street, opposite the school, which caters for children from nursery age up to 11 years old, there is a communal area which is mainly used as a playground. Bordering on this area are two monuments dedicated to two young men, heroes of the village.

Across the road from the playground is the Church of the Transfiguration and not far from this church are the ruins of a tiny chapel dedicated to Saints Zinovia and Filonilli. These two saints accompanied St Paul to Paphos to help spread Christianity. They died and were buried in Kissonerga. The old and new churches in all the local villages are richly decorated with gold, icons and some painted walls.

There is the local archaeological site at Lemba village just 2 km to the north of Kissonerga. A rare settlement of the Chalcolithic culture characteristic of the Paphos region, which lasted for about a millennium (3500-2500 BCE), has been discovered. The site is an important settlement and evidence suggests that a powerful fertility goddess was worshipped here who protected childbirth and infants. Among the many artefacts found there are a clay figurine of a woman seated on a stool in the act of childbirth and a unique limestone statuette representing a pregnant woman with a phallic neck.
