Natural Environment

Delikipos has been blessed by nature with gorgeous images created by the expanses covered with pines and the grain cultivations which resemble a golden lake during the summer months. 

The green colour and splendid scent of the pine cover the uncultivated pieces of land of Delikipos and at the same time an important part of the village’s land.

Grains such as wheat, barley and common vetch dominate the cultivated expanses of Delikipos. What is worth mentioning is that land cultivation constitutes one of the most common professions of the few residents of Delikipos today.  

Moreover, the village is also covered with many olive trees, some of which age-long. According to Karouzis, these olive trees constitute the remains of the Venetian occupation. In fact, olive cultivation has always been and still is today a main profession of the residents. More: Olive Cultivation 

Apart from pines, grains and olive trees, in Delikipos one encounters carobs, prickly pears and some vines. In the old years, Delikipos was full of vines, whereas today these are quite limited in number. Vine cultivation was abandoned approximately 20 years ago since it was no longer considered a profitable occupation.

The beautiful images of the village are enhanced by the community’s greenery areas such as the Community Park and the designed by the Department of Forests Nature’s Trail which are full of Cyprus pines.

The fauna of Delikipos comprises of hares, partridges, foxes, goats, donkeys and various other reptiles such as snakes.
