Kaminaria (Greek: Kαμινάρια) is a small village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, located 2 km south of Treis Elies. To the sourtheast it borders with the village Phoini and to the southwest with Agios Nikolaos.

In the centre of the village next to the Church of Agios Georgios is situated the Museum of Cultural Heritage with exhibits of mainly ecclesiastical and folk art from this mountain community.

A special place is occupied in this collection by the 16thcentury doors leading to the Holy of Holies, depicting Saints Vasilis and Ioannis Chrysostomos and a series of painted screens of the 18th century.

Before entering the village of Kaminaria, ramblers may choose to follow the path leading to the Venetian bridges along the Diarizos valley.
