KYPEROUNDA history

History

The name of the village is possibly related to the plant named “kypiros” or “kyperi” or “kyperos” or “kapouro”. Explicitly, “kyperos” is a weed that grows widely in the area and is used to feed animals. It is scientifically named “cyperus rotunus”. The village was possibly established during the Byzantine era. This is indicated by several folkloric songs of the 9th and 11th century that mention its name. One of these songs is named Marouthkia. During Frank domination, as De Mas Lartie mentions, “Chiperonda” was one of the villages that were considered royal property. The map of Abraham Ortelius also charted the village as “Choperoda” in 1573. During the Ottoman era, the village was divided into two neighborhoods by river Kourris. One of the neighborhoods was built around the church of Saint Marina, while the other was built on the east of the Church dedicated to Virgin Mary. The houses were built in such a way so as to “be able to internally communicate with one another” and their roofs were unified, creating an imaginary road. This type of architecture helped the inhabitants to escape in cases of Turkish invasions and loots.

The inhabitants of the village showed a great fighting spirit during the I’ and II’ World War, the Greek-Italian war and during the 1955-1959 Liberation Struggle, where many young participated. The whole village contributed to the Liberation Struggle by helping out in the organization of ambushed and in the alimentation of the fighters. During the Struggle against the English Avgoustis Savva, Georgios Charalambous, Christodoulos Kannaouros and Kyriacos Charalambous were sacrificed for the freedom of our country. It is worth mentioning that chief Digenis stayed for a long time in Kyperounda. Kyperounda is a picturesque village that still honors traditional architecture. The “religious monuments”, explicitly the main church of the village dedicated to Saint Marina, the church of Virgin Mary and Chrysosotiros and the chapel of the Holy Cross add to the beauty of the village. It is worth mentioning that the chapel is interesting for its “ecclesiastical sculpture” and its murals that go bask to 1521. The chapel is included in the World Heritage catalogue conducted by Unesco, and it has been turned into a museum.
