The Kakopetria Watermills are located in the village of Kakopetria in the Nicosia district. The abundant water in the Karkoti and Garilli Rivers, gave the impetus for the construction of the water mills. The watermills of Kakoeptria were “Mylos tis Gonias” and “Mylos tou Hadjistavrinou”. The “Mylos tis Gonias” watermill was built above the central road, on the left bank of the Agiou Nikolaou River, a smaller river derived from the Karkotis River. The “Mylos tou Hadjistavrinou” was near the bridge on the main road, in between the triangle formed by the rivers. © iStockphoto/uhg1234
