The bridge connect Ayio Nikolaos , Kaminaria and Treis Elies with the villages Milikouri , Vretsia and Agios Ioannis. In the Ancient time evidence show that the bridge was called Bridge of Vokaria. The current name of bridge Tselefos comes from the greek word kelifos which can be translated as the word shell in english.

Really close to Tselefos Bridge is Arso village and Omodos too. In this article we will show Arso village. Some people believe that name Arsos comes from the Holy Alsos (grove) of the goddess Aphrodite, where the village is built. The other version says that it was one of the 4 towns founded by Ptolemy Philadelphos in the honour of Arsinoe. It is important to say that all the inhabitans they make their own wine, they grown grapes and they are famous of producing zivania.

 

You can find nice taverns to eat and there is one church in the center. Also next to the center there is one restaurant that make souvlaki. Follow the smell and you will see it:)
