At the entrance of the Throni Hill you are greeted by the bronze statue of Makarios which was moved here in 2008 from the Archbishop’s Palace in Nicosia. This is actually to the north of Throni Hill and was specially designed as a square at the entrance. You will then make your way along the path. You will see the circular path that takes you to Makarios Tomb and then there is another pathway that takes you to the hill top where the Throni is. There is also another pathway that takes you to the Monastery. All along these paths you are surrounded by the wonderful forest and mountain views of Troodos.
An important number of mosaic compositions were arranged all along the length of the pathway to adorn the way up or down. You will also find icon both left and right along the path leading up to the top of Throni. Take in the structures with the white pillars and stone build walls along the path. All these element allows visitors to admire some religious history and cultural designs from Cyprus.
While visiting you may decide to also visit the wishing tree found here. This is a tree where people tie a piece of cloth with a message in hopes that the Virgin Mary will grant the wish. This is how these trees get their names as wishing trees.
Once at the top of the mountain embrace the spectacular 360° views of endless mountains, valleys, trees, skies, clouds and nature. Find a spot to sit and take it all in, the clean fresh mountain air and the beauty of mother nature.
