Cyprus - Omodos

The third of the three postcards sent by Maria from Cyprus. It shows Omodos, a small village in Troodos mountains. According to Maria, it is well-known for its narrow streets and good wineries.

This is from Wikipedia : Omodos (Greek: 'Ομοδος) is a village in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus. It is also located in the Limassol District of Cyprus and is 80 kilometers from the city of Nicosia. The village produces a lot of wine and holds a wine festival every August. You can visit a 17th Century stone built monastery via a cobblestone path and sample local wine for free at many outlets. You will also find a good mix of restaurants including traditional tavernas and a few modern bars housed in traditional buildings.

... thanks to Maria for the beautiful stamps.
