The iron bridge of Trozena

Trozena Bridge is one of the most unique bridges in Cyprus, due to its construction as well as its location.

It was constructed during the British colonization using typical British mecahnics, materials and designs (iron frame and wooden deck set upon beams). It is one of the few bridges of its kind that are still preserved – and indeed operating – and it is built on the banks of the stream where the water of the Diarizos River flows. oday, the neighboring Trozena village is deserted. However, the iron bridge was a frequently used passageway in the mid-20th century, as it connects villages that were known for their viticulture. Today, movement on the bridge is scarce, but the landscape remains beautiful.
