Phini Village

Nestling in the heart of the Troodos mountains amidst green and fragrant pines is yet another picturesque village, that of Phini. According to tradition, the village was named after a Frankish lord, Juan de Fejniu or Feniu, while another says its name originates from the Greek word for palmtree “phoenikas”. The village is renowned for its pottery, for the manufacture of traditional furniture and for the local “loukoumi” (delight).
The Pilavakeion, a private museum of folk art, displays examples of local pottery, traditional agricultural tools and kitchen utensils.
