The village of Kato Drys borders with the villages of Pano Lefkara, Kato Lefkara and Vavla. It also stands in the middle of three major cities of Cyprus, Nicosia (50km), Larnaka (36km) and Limassol (36km). Kato Drys is set in a hilly terrain with narrow, deep valleys, through which flows the Agios Minas river. Kato Drys means “lower oak” in Greek.
Kato Drys has existed since the Byzantine period and it is noted as the birthplace of Agios Neophytos, who was born in 1134. The house which he was born still stands today, and there is a small church dedicated to the Saint located on a hill near the village.
