APAISIA history

History

The beautiful and picturesque village of Apesia has emerged for centuries in the south of the Troodos mountain range, in the middle of the rivers Garyllis and Limnatis. 

It is a semi-mountainous village of the Lemesos District, built on an altitude of 480 metres. 

In Apesia, traditional elements coexist with the modern ones. On the one side there is a traditional housing with small stone built residences and on the other side there are new bigger residences spread west and southwest of the old housing. 

HistoricalFacts

The history of Apesia begins thousands of years back, when the first residents settled here from Apesos of Asia Minor.

The long-century history of the village is confirmed by the gravestone columns with Greek inscriptions in the yard of the school and church, as well as ancient roman tombs, which, according to Gunnis, were illegally destroyed.

In particular, findings as well as other cultural remains reveal that the area had residents during the Neolithic, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine period, as well as during the Frankish and Venetian occupation. 

According to the Great Cyprus Encyclopaedia, the village is not included in the “list of fiefs or royal estates of the Luzignan and Venetian period”.

Naming

The name of the village seems to be related to Apesia – obviously Apesos – of Asia Minor, according to Nearchos Clerides. The latter actually links the naming of the village with the arrival of residents from the homonymic area of Asia Minor.

Population

From the 80s up until today, Apesia has followed an increasing populating course. The village, with the completion of a series of improvement works, and also thanks to the peace and human kindness offered by the countryside, is optimistic that not only will it maintain its population, but also that it will increase it by attracting new permanent residents.

Education

The primary school of Apesia is attended by 36 students. Starting from the school year of 2007-2008, the Single All-day School began its operation, where students remain at school until 4 pm. In total, the school has eight teachers. All nursery school, Gymnasium or Lyceum students who attend school in Lemesos are offered free bus transfer
