Petra tou Androgynou (Androgyne Stone)

At the entrance of Old Kakopetria, near the uphill road that leads to the church of Metamorphosis, stands a large stone, known as Petra tou Androgynou. According to the tradition, every newly married couple had to walk around, sit down on it, and from there wish to ‘become as stable as stone’. Unfortunately, this stone is also identified with the tragic story of a couple who, following tradition, visited the stone, where it fell and killed the young couple.
