It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the municipality of Pegeia website. The aim of this webiste is to communicate better with the public.
The municipality of Pegeia is a newly established municipality that has high hopes for the future, as the enthusiasm that drives not only the municipal council but our citizens as well is a guarantee of creativity and success. The municipal council is steadily moving towards modernising its services. At the same time, the municipality authorities try to develop the provided services and they work hard to achieve the prosperity of the area.
Pegeia is a stunningly beautiful area of Paphos.The historical tradition is traced back to the Chalcolithic age. The old castle in the Maa area, "Tafoi Tou Meleti", the Early Christian Basilicas with mosaic floors in the Agios Georgios area and the famous monument "Vrisi Ton Peyiotisson Springs " are some examples of the rich history of Pegeia. Also the sandy beaches, the crystal clear waters, the exotic green palm trees and banana trees make the place even more attractive.
For this reason, the area attracts local and foreign visitors as well; therefore Pegeia has been transformed into a tourist destination. Both locals and tourists enjoy the hotels, villas, tavernas, restaurants, bars and various other recreational attractions. Furthermore, many foreign visitors have chosen to stay in Pegeia permanently.
Pegeia has become a multicultural and European municipality. So, esteemed fellow citizens, lets work together for the Pegeia of tomorrow in order to achieve our goals which are to improve our quality of life and to transform our region into a service-providing hub of culture and prosperity.
Within these web pages, you will find useful information about the region, its sights, various events and other useful details.
