What to See and Do in Lympia
Lympia village has recently had its 15 minutes of fame for its beautiful ”love steps” – a set of colorfully painted steps at the entrance of the village.
But hear me out, because I have a question for you! How many of you, have visited the ‘’ Love steps in Lympia, and left, before exploring the village? If you are one of these people, then keep reading!
In the village, they are planting trees and vegetable gardens, adding street art and splashes of color, and revamping old traditional houses!
At the same time, we find fresh halloumi and anari cheese, stone-built guesthouses, and colorful cobbled streets full of flowers in full bloom.
To top it all off, there is excellent Cyprus brunch, olive picking experiences, and many more. So come with me, and let’s take a walk together! Explore the street Art on the streets of Lympia
Look how gorgeous all this street art is! I totally didnt expect to find such excellent pieces on the streets in Lympia – it reminded me of walking the streets of Instabul! You will no doubt want to enjoy a walk and take in the work that was put in to these pieces of art!

Hapeshis family traditional houses in Lympia village dates back to the early 19th century. Mr. Kakoullis Hapeshis, the youngest out of 11 siblings, was a builder and an enthusiast in extracting and carving the local stone that is still available in the surrounding areas. He used to load his donkey with stone as well as wood and local reed to transfer to the site, where he gradually started building the current premises. The lower part of the buildings is constructed using the local stone and the upper part of the buildings is built with sun-dried, clay type of bricks (adobe bricks).
