Kyra Panagia village is not big at all, there was built only a few apartments, taverns, and a small souvenir shop in the shade of the cliffs. In the main street there are also some parking lots, directly next to the road. The other streets of the village are quite narrow and these are designed primarily for pedestrian traffic. The sidewalks of Kyra Panagia are filled with hundreds of flowers. Oleanders, geraniums, mediterranean pine trees and tamarisks make the barren valley alive and beautiful, to the great delight of the residents and the visitors of Karpathos island.
