This is a distinctive IBA site, comprising the high limestone plateau of Vouni Panagias, at around 1,000m elevation. The area is dominated by vineyards and is of importance as a designated Special Protection Area (SPA), with good breeding populations of Masked Shrike (Lanius nubicus), Cyprus Wheatear (Oenanthe cypriaca) and Cretzschmar’s Bunting (Emberiza caesia). Long-legged Buzzard (Buteo rufinus) and Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) also nest here.
