Ayios Georgios Basilicas – “Peyia Fountains”

Approximately 4.5km from the village of Peyia, near the fishing shelter, lay the ruins of two early Christian basilicas with very interesting floor mosaics depicting animals. This must have been the site of an important early Christian settlement. Nearby are rock-hewn tombs of the Roman period.
The picturesque “Peyia fountains” of which many folk songs have been sung, can be seen in the pretty cobbled square of the village.
