Almonds, probably, are the most famous nuts in the world. But not everyone knows how magnificent they are during the blooming period. If you visit Lefkara or Limnatis villages in February, you will be charmed by the groves of almond trees which will be covered with a gentle veil of flowers. By the way, the colour of the blossoms can tell you about the almond variety—white petals for bitter nuts and pink petals for sweet almonds.
Both villages hold local festivities with almond pastries and goods when the saturated aroma of almond trees fills the air.
