Kakopetria, situated in the northern foothills of the Troodos Mountains, has a cool climate and amazing landscapes, making it a desirable tourist destination. It is abundant with fruit trees of every variety, but is well known for its apples. Vegetables - especially tomatoes and potatoes - some grains, and vineyards for wine-making are prominent. There are a number of must-see attractions in the area, including Old Kakopetria, which was designated an ancient monument by the Department of Antiquities. There are also the Kakopetria Forest and the Trail of Atalanti, the Milos tis Gonias water mill, Central Square, and the Heroes' Monument. Travelers may also want to see the Olive Mill Museum, or Linos Museum, dedicated to wine, bread, and olive oil; both are in Old Kakopetria.
