There are various stories regarding the origin of its name, the most prevalent being that it derives from the Italian word "vavala". Today Vavla, following the waves of urban pull, stands within a rich natural environment of wild vegetation, a great number of herbal plants, vineyards and a small number of carob tree, almond tree and grain plantations. The visitor should see the noteworthy Monastery of Ayios Minas close to the village, walk the nature trails of the area, and visit the neolithic settlement of Choirokoitia.
