Peyia

The origin of the name Pegeia, is said to derive from the Latin word Baia (Bay) due to the close proximity of Coral Bay, which served as a natural safe docking for Egyptian cargo vessels dating back to antiquity. The village was first settled by Venetians, during the Venetian Domination of Cyprus (1489-1570), probably by Venetian merchant sailors and or by sailors of the Venetian fleet in conflict with the Ottomans over Cyprus rule.

 

Pegeia, like many other towns in the Paphos region, sports a large number of cafes and restaurants along the main road of Coral Bay. More places to eat are being built on the next road in, to the east of the main strip, suggesting there is no shortage of demand. These range from taverns, meze houses and traditional cafes, to themed restaurants hosting, for example, Chinese nights. The next significant town is Kathikas, which again has an impressive range of eateries, as well as the Sterna Winery.

Emba

Emba is one of the largest villages in Paphos, Cyprus. It is spread over a wide area and not only borders Paphos but also the villages of Chlorakas, Kissonerga, Tala, Tremithousa and Mesogi. It has a population of 4,500 people. The appellation of the village is purely Greek, belonging to the Cypriot dialect.

 

In this dialect Emba means “enter”. It is possible that the name of the village was given because it is built at the entrance of Paphos, through which the travelers from the north, northwest and west came in.  Another version mentions that the name was given to the village because it is situated near the coast from where people departed from or arrived to Cyprus by sea, during the Byzantine era or even later during the period of the Frankish rule. It is mentioned that King Peter I departed for Europe from the area in 1362.

 

The village is noted as ‘Emba’ in the medieval maps. Emba has a few shops and tavernas dotted along the narrow winding road that runs through the village.
