Andreas Paraskevas

Andreas Paraskevas was the son of Nikos and Kiki Paraskevas, who also had Maro Paraskevas – Stokkou as a child.

He was born in Platres and graduated from Omodos High School. He completed his military service and was preparing to go study abroad. However, he could not fulfill his dream because Black July caught up with him, losing his life on July 22, 1974.

In July 1974, when the Turks invaded Greece, Andreas promptly enlisted to fulfil his duty to the country. In the vicinity of Nicosia’s Central Prisons, he fought alongside other Greek Cypriots on the front lines. He fought valiantly, but was killed at the age of twenty-one by the enemy’s gunfire.

In his honour, the Community of Platres erected a monument of him in the area of the community’s municipal parking lot.

Millomeris Waterfall

Millomeris Waterfall

Few Words

It is situated in the south-eastern region of Platres, one kilometre from the beginning of the “nature path” that leads there. A dirt road leads to the waterfall, from which vehicles can access it.

The name of the waterfall is likely derived from the Cypriot dialect word millos, which means wet, and the word part (millos + meros = Millomeris). They named the waterfall Millomeri as a result of the wet and chilly environment created by the Cold River’s flow. The waterfall’s water from a height of fifteen metres. This waterfall has only recently gained recognition due to the fact that its location was inaccessible until recently. However, as a result of the completed construction, the road and path that were constructed to provide access to it, the Millomeri waterfall is now one of P. Platres’s attractions and its majesty attracts a large number of visitors.
