Doros Village, Limassol Cyprus
Doros is situated on a hill of 470 metres. It is hidden and surrounded by almond trees and grapevines. Doros is 25 kilometres outside Limassol on the left side of the Limassol to Troodos road, travelling towards Troodos. The name Doros is associated with the ancient Greek word Doris which means forest.
The 150 or so residents are all farmers tending their live stock and fruit orchards. The restoration of many houses, the traditional coffee shop and the numerous cultural festivities prove that Doros is full of life. This is a good reminder of the good old days prior to urbanization.
In 2002, an ancient tomb was discovered and handed over to the Department Of Antiquities. Doros has made a name for itself for the quality of its grapes which makes a first class Commandaria and Zivania that is very popular with locals and visitors alike.
Visitors to the village will experience great hospitality from the friendly villagers. Any visitor will enjoy walking in the narrow little streets of the village free from traffic noise. They admire the original stone built houses, the Community Park surrounded by pine trees, the windmill and the ancient water pump that still provides excellent drinking water.
Above all there is a beautiful church built in the 14th and 15th Century called Panagia Galaktotrofoucas which is dedicated to Christ’s mother.
