Have you tried Cyprus mandarins? Don’t they taste divine? Want to have a more in-depth mandarin experience? If yes, the Mandarin Festival of Dierona village is the place to be. This picturesque village in the semi-mountainous area of Lemesos district is famous for its abundant citrus orchards and every March it organises the festival to celebrate its juicy, divine fruit.
Visitors to the festival are greeted with tasty mandarins and zivania (a strong traditional pomace drink). Smell the citrus in the air and discover mandarin liqueur, mandarin zivania, mandarin juice, mandarin sweets and dozens of other mandarin inspired concoctions. Enjoy and buy traditional dishes from food vendors onsite. The festival also features a stage program with traditional music and dances.
Grab the opportunity to walk in the village which was once a feud of Medieval Knights. Visit Archangel Michael church, the Old Primary School and the 200-year-old bridge that led villagers to the Flour Mills at the banks of Amathos river.
