Pera Pedi (ΠΕΡΑ ΠΕΔΙ)

Pera Pedi

Pera Pedi is located in the south of the Troodos mountain range, about 35 kilometers northwest of Limassol and at an altitude of 770 meters. It is built upon wide, leveled ground, which is surrounded by mountains whose altitude ranges between 850 and 1000 meters. The Krios (cold) river, a tributary of the river Kouris, crosses the village. Pera Pedi receives an average annual rainfall of about 800 millimeters; wine-making varieties vines, apples, pears, and other plants are cultivated in the region. It is one of the first villages that cultivated apples and became known all over Cyprus as an exclusively apple-producing village.

The village, in its age-long history, has gone through many fluctuations of its population. In 1881 the its inhabitants run up to 182, increasing to 249 in 1901, to 347 in 1921, and to 422 in 1946. Then the village, like other villages of the region, was struck by the urban pull and as a result the inhabitants were reduced to 281 in 1960, to 217 in 1973, and to 130 in 1982. Of course today the population numbers are very encouraging because, with the excellent improvement of the road network and also through providing many incentives, around 250 residences have been erected, pushing the numbers high up -especially during the summer season -and resulting in a continuous course of growth and progress for the village during recent years.
