CyHerbia Botanical Park and Labryrinth
is situated in the village of Avgorou, and includes a beautifully landscaped herb garden, woodland area the shape of Cyprus, scattered with the endemic trees and shrubs of Cyprus, and is the first and only hedge maze, all 2000 sq.m. of it, on the island.

Mediterranean Herbs
At CyHerbia they grow all kinds of Mediterranean herbs organically and make the most delicious teas which not only taste great but help you stay healthy too, as well as address possible health problems.  They distill their own essential oils and make fragrant soaps and other herbal products.  The herb gardens, maze and woodland are now open to the public.

Handy Guide
Take a stroll round the 9 themed gardens which make up the Main Garden.  Using your handy guide, you can see which herbs are used in the production of their herbal remedies.

Tea Room
Log onto the free Wifi, and try out their refreshing herbal teas and relax in the breezy shade, overlooking the gardens.  You can read about the therapeutic actions of herbs in one of the many books they have in their library for you to use.  Herbs and many other herbal products such as creams, salves and tinctures are on sale in the Tea Room, feel free to browse the selections.

Distillation Room

the distillation room.  You will be enchanted by the wonderful aromas released during the
process.

Cyprus Maze
Try to find your way out of the only hedge maze in Cyprus.  You can have an elevated view if you can find your way to the observation tower, maybe it will help you in your quest?

Butterflies
I’ll let you into a little secret; Miranda, founder of CyHerbia has a passion for butterflies and breeds them as a hobby, her knowledge is extensive and she is always happy to share !

Sanctuary Woodland
Take a leisurely stroll around the island in our Sanctuary Woodland, designed using the
Cypress trees as the outline.  We have many species of birds taking refuge in our trees and
shrubs, and are nesting in many places.  The trees and shrubs are indigenous to Cyprus and have been used for centuries in various traditional food products, furniture and other
household uses.
