In various locations around Lysos there are many remarkable landmark churches such as the church of Ayios Georgios built in the 13th century where frescoes of Saint Mama can be found and is still protected by the antiquities department. Churches such as Panayia Chryselousa constructed at the end of the 15th century with Byzantine and Gothic elements, Profitis Elias, Ayios Constantinos, Ayios Charalambos and the country church of Archangel Michael provide for a unique perspective of the village history.
With an abundance of natural water Lysos was used in Cyprus as an industrial area for the melting of metals. The fountain located by the church and built in the 1900s was made entirely of stone including the five taps of which were used to supply fresh drinking water.
Lysos is situated between the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and some spectacular mountains filled with pine trees, fruit and olive trees, wild flowers and herbs and vineyards.
