I'm fascinated by the geology of Cyprus and this small visitor centre, located in the school of the defunct asbestos mine, is brilliant. There are fabulous rocks on display alongside information on the mining of copper, chromium and asbestos. Well worth a visit. It's open...More

This is a review for the visitors centre, as signposted from the main square, accessed down a crazy paved path... 1 euro entry, a very small and moderately interesting selection of rocks and stuffed animals, some geological history with some flora and fauna identification thrown...More

The wildlife dioramas in the visitor center are nice (mouflon, eagle, vulture, hoppoe...). The video is ok but the "botanical walk" outside was a flop. While there are many signs, 90% of the plants or more where completely absent. Clearly needs new plants and more...More

This was an amazing place to visit, very disabled friendly and fascinating. The must see thing above all the others is the 26 min film of how the troodos was created. Put up with the technical language and you will learn so much. The staff...More

We were amazed to find one had to pay to get into the Visitors' Centre. It only costs one euro per person but nevertheless as a matter of principle this seems odd compared to other European visitors' centres. This levy doesn't encourage people to go...More

Staff is least interested in helping. Can barely speak a few words in English. Had no clue about what time the buses leave from a stop 300meter from their office. For information asked me to a information center in neighboring village, 25 km away!
