Some 17km to the southeast of the town of Pafos is the village Nikokleia, amidst a valley crossed by the river Diarizos. Its name is derived from the last king of Pafos, Nikoklis (520 BC) and it is built at 400m above sea level on the west bank of Diarizos.
The Diarizos valley is an interesting habitat for millions of birds, and a host to vineyards, orange orchards, bean and vegetable plantations. Next to the village is the commanding Asprokremmos dam, a remarkable sight to visitors.
At the centre of the village is the church of Ayios Demetrios, of great historical value (AD 1768)
