Pissouri receives about 450mm of rain annually, but has a good supply of ground water in the valley, with agriculture and tourism as the two main commercial interests. Weather is mainly hot and dry during the summer months, and cooler with rains over the winter, and a common local phrase is “another perfect day in paradise”. It consists of two main locales, separated by farmlands and hills.
The main PISSOURI VILLAGE is located about 3 kilometers from the sea on the Cape Aspro ridge, and about 500 feet above sea level (152 meters). It is the administrative centre for the Pissouri District, and boasts a lively village square, with an array of services. There are many charming tavernas and coffee shops, and also entertainment facilities, a magnificent Gothic church, and several chapels. The village is mostly home to Cypriots but also has a large ex-patriot population.
