Akamas Geology and Paleontology Information Center
I am Arsinoe Papalla, Geologist and Head of the Akama Geology and Paleontology Information Center in Pano Arodes and I welcome you today to the Center and to our community. The Center has been operating since April 2022 and we have received more than 1,500 visitors, as well as several Schools from Cyprus and abroad. The comments are very positive!
The main objective of the Center is to inform visitors about the various rocks and fossils, the genesis of the island of Cyprus, the seismological characteristics of the area, the geomorphology of Akamas, the mines/quarries/galleys that operated at times, and others. Alongside the geological information, visitors can learn about the various Cypriot herbs and have a pleasant time in the garden and the courtyard of the Centre. While our little visitors enjoy their educational activities in the specially designed area.
