Article: Argaka, Polis Area

ARGAKA,

 

Polis area

 

rgaka 

  Argaka is 8km from Polis along the coastal road. Before the village you will spot the disused Limni mine which transported copper from the area, on the left you will see the abandoned jetty where the ships were loaded jutting out to sea, a reminder of the rich past.

 At the start of the village there are signposts to a picnic area adjacent to the beach, an ideal place to spend the day swimming and enjoying the shade of the trees.

 

 â€˜Arkatzi’ which in Cypriot dialect means stream and where the modern name Argaka originates from.

 

 The country church of Saint Varvara is located east of the village. It has been extensively renovated and only the few capitals of columns and the carved framings around the doors reveal its age, probably being of the 18th century.

 

 The village population has seen growth from 90 inhabitants in 1881 to 793 at the last census in 2001. Behind the initial increase of population was the Limni copper mines, after its closure the village managed to thrive due to the fertile land of the ‘Limni’ (Lake), which along with modern agricultural methods enabled growth of profitable produce. Currently there has been an influx of ex pats either retiring or investing in holiday homes.

 

Argaka 

 Given the excellent location of the village and due to the relatively large tract of land that is irrigated naturally it has an abundance of vegetable farmers.

 Apart from cereals and legumes, forage plants, vegetables (mainly cucumbers, tomatoes and melons) citrus fruits and olive trees, the hot climate helps the growing of some semi-tropical plants such as Indian fig and the loquat.

 As you drive around you will see many greenhouses and vegetable fields.

 

 Upper Argaka stands upon a slope with excellent views towards the sea and of the Paphos forest, the east part of the village has officially been deemed as a region of excellent natural beauty.

 Several streams flow down from the slope towards the sea, indeed with a relatively large one flowing next to the village.

 

 The river of Makounta, upon which the Argaka - Makounta dam was constructed is located southeast of the village.

 

 

 The lower part of the village had been developed recently and runs along the coast. Here you will find a variety of supermarkets and tavernas, a good place to rest up and look out to the sea or to buy some of the local produce you have seen growing in the area.

 

  Being rural, early morning walks are particularly enjoyable.

 

 

 Argaka is a very privileged village. It is a small beautiful community of the area of Polis Chrysochous.

 It lies at the very beginning of Pafos Forest and only meters away from the beach. It enjoys both sea and mountain views, and an excellent climate.

 Argaka is a village full of life and proud of its agricultural industry.
