Palaichoria (ΠΑΛΑΙΧΩΡΙΑ)

Palaichoria

Palaichori is a village that consists of two separate communities, Palaichori Oreinis and Palaichori Morphou, and two separate community councils. Both villages belong to the district of Pitsilia and are only 43 kilometres away from the capital. It is worth mentioning that topographical charts of the island never mention that the village is divided in two parts. This often leads to the conclusion that Palaichori is “the biggest village of Pitsilia”. Preceding charts indicate this region with the name “Palicori”.

The administrative division of Palaichori, which is in actual fact the two separate community councils, was decided based on a natural boundary, namely the “Palaichori creek” or “affluent of river Serrachis”, that divides Palaichori in two parts.

Palaichoria is considered as one of the best-irrigated regions in Cyprus due to the high levels of annual rainfall. Most of the area, excluding its rocky and abrupt parts, has been used for agricultural purposes. People from both villages cultivate the vineyards, suitable for the production of wine and different kinds of trees such as apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, pomegranates. What is more, they grow a variety of pulses such as beans that are only produced there and broad beans.Palaichori is also famous for its potatoes and tomatoes, which are known as “pomilorka”. All these are irrigated with water from the Palaichori-Kampi dam.
