Beautiful views, breathtaking landscape and an amazingly fast river at spring. Need to be psychical fit elevation is high. Not well-marked trail, so be careful to not get lost in the forest area. May too hot destination at summer, but take a bath in the river can be a great experience as well. At winter the river is ice cold, so not an option even if more water in.
Roudia Bridge although is one of the most beautiful venetian bridges in Cyprus, it is rarely mentioned in tourist guides. Most people know and visit the Treis Elies Bridge and Tzielefos Bridge. Maybe because is more difficult to get their.
Roudia Bridge is located near the Pera Vasa Picnic Site on the road to Mylikouri and Pano Panagia at the District of Paphos. It is not far away from the well known Tzielefos Bridge. There is a sign close to the bridge.
Beneath the bridge Xeros River is passing thourgh and a blanket of roots from old trees. The area is rich in plain trees, alder trees and pine trees.
Roudia Bridge is part of the Natural Trail that connects the three venetian bridges of Paphos. It was built during the Venetian period and the name “roudia” comes from a bush which was important for the venetian trade.
