Edited by

Eftagoneia is a village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, located 4 km north of Kellaki and 28km from Limassol town.

Eptagoneia is at the foot of Papoutsa and belongs to the Pitsilia geographic area and lies in a semi-mountainous area. It is near Arakapas, Kellaki, Akapnou some Limassol’s villages and near Melini and Ora villages that belongs in the Larnaca district.

The village is located in a semi-mountainous area which is surrounded by high mountains, on an altitude of 475 m above sea level, and which is “dressed” in green colours in both spring and summer.

Eptagonia has been known since the Frankish occupation. Originally it was an estate of the Templar Knights in Cyprus. After the order of the Templar Knights ceased to exist, Eptagonia became property of the Hospitaller Knights who were headquartered in Kolossi and the village was one of the villages of the Great Commanderie. Eptagonia is marked on old maps as Astagonia.
