Tucked away in pine covered mountain slopes the picturesque village of Agros is renowned for its unique homemade products. Small privately owned home industries invite visitors to see the various processes required to manufacture chemical free delicious wine, fruit preserves, sweets and liqueurs as well as aromatic oils and perfumed candles. Rosa Damascena, a rose bush brought to Cyprus in antiquity from Mesopotamia is extensively and exclusively cultivated at Agros. It produces a bright pink flower whose delicate petals and intoxicating smell are a source of delightful concoctions.

In the House of Roses you will have the opportunity to see how hand made pottery for the storage of the products is made, the process of perfumed candle making and taste things such as rose aperitif, rose liqueurs, rose water and rose wine.
