PELENDRI history

History

Pelendri, which can be found in the western end of Pitsylia, just east of the "Karvouna - Saitta" valley, and situated close to the villages of Kato Amiantos, Potamistissa and Agros in the east, as well as the village of Trimiklini in the west is situated just 40 Kilometers from the port city of Limassol. Pelendri is surrounded by hills with an altitude of 880 meters, with picturesque views all around. Pelendri existed as a settlement since the mediaeval times. De Masse Latri mentions it as Pelendres or Pelondres that in 1353 was a feud of John de Lusignan, who at the time was a member of the royal family of Cyprus.

The medieval analyst Georgios Voustronios mentions the village twice in his chronicle. In one instance he reports that on about the year 1461 a wealthy person - most probably a merchant -under the name Satenis lived in the settlement. In the second instance he mentions two farms/ranches of Pelendri that belonged to Ridgo di Marino and that were confiscated in 1474 by Catherine Cornaro. These two ranches, which are the Kardama and the Filagra, were dissolved during the Turkish domination era. The Filagra however was re-established under the same name in the middle of the 20th century and contained a small number of houses and entertainment centres for the tourists along the main road of Karvounas - Saittas.

Pelendri receives an average annual rainfall of approximately 750 millimetres; which helps in the growth of a variety of vegetation. A variety of fruit-trees (apple, pear, peach, and plum trees), olive trees, almond, and walnut trees are in abundance, as well as a variety of winemaking grapevines. In addition, Pelendri also cultivates a lot of its own vegetables locally such as, potatoes, fresh beans, tomatoes, etc.  The village is included in the plan for a uniform agrarian development for Pitsylia and has benefited with the construction of the earthen reservoir for the irrigation of land. As well, it benefits from the creation of a sanitary centre, the improvement of the rural streets, and the re-allotment of land projects that was done in the region.

Pelendri is one of the most picturesque villages in Cyprus and follows a strict preservation program for its architectural style of folkloric. Several modern buildings have been erected in the village; however, in the centre of the original nucleus of the village, many traditional houses are still preserved, and built with local rock gabbrou. Pelendri, as a feud and an administrative centre during the medieval years, has preserved a rich cultural heritage, mainly the monuments of Byzantine art. Pelendri, from a statistical point of view, ranks first in the entire district of Limassol in volume of Byzantine heritage and especially in the percentage of icons. Pelendri is also known for its unique churches and chapels. The church of the Holy Cross which has frescos from 1178 is a part of the global cultural heritage of UNESCO; the church of Panagia Catholiki with its 16th century icons was placed under the protection of the Department of Antiquities; the church of Ioannis Lambadistis with its large dome roof, makes it stand out from a distance, and finally the church of Archangel Michael, gives visitors a look at a more modern church.
