Tradition and heritage form an important part of daily life in Troodos. Set amid the stunning landscape, small communities and villages have existed for centuries. An integral part of life in the region are local festivals commemorating the patron saint of a village. Other events cover a wide variety of themes such as folk art and crafts festivals, bread, preserved sweets, meat and other local produce exhibitions and wine tasting events. In recent years , the Cyprus Tourism Organisation has been sponsoring such events as way of introducing rural Cyprus to the wider public.
In addition to events focusing on local tradition and heritage , Troodos hosts a wide range of special leisure activities catering to all ages and tastes. These range from classic motorcar rallies to active day events where the whole family can try their skills at such activities as archery, horse riding or mountain biking.
