Natural Environment

The picturesque small village of Agia Marina seems to arise from the extensive green valley surrounding the deep blue sea of Morphou. On its southern part, lies the forest “Adelphi”, whilst it is filled with ancient olive trees. The natural environment of Agia Marina includes fructiferous trees and wild plantation as well. Let’s meet its natural beauty!

The “Adelphi” forest covers an area of 128,9 square kilometres. The forest is the natural southern border for Agia Marina Xyliatou. It is worth mentioning that wooden homesteads were built on the highest point of the forest, namely hill Mazeri. These function as offices, observation towers as well as accommodation units for rangers. It is extremely interesting that Jack Goodwin refers to “Adelphi” forest as a sylvan centre at the end of the 18th century.   

As mentioned above, ancient trees can be found in the village, trees that go back to the beginning of the 15th century. Two of them are two olive trees found at the Agios Kyriacos or Ay Tzirkakos area. They are known as “the olive trees of Kattimeritzis”. Another two olive trees, the “olive trees of Hadjiakimis” are found at the “Pithkia” and “Kapparkes” areas accordingly.  

Consequently, Agia Marina Xyliatou has an extraordinarily beautiful scenery to offer, as it emerges majestic out of the local plantation.
