Overview

Cyprus is one of the most geologically interesting countries in the world. It’s name is believed to be derived from the Greek word for “copper”, and is home to the longest continuously-operational copper mine in the world. It also hosts one of the best-known ophiolite formations in the world – the Troodos Massif – where the ancient seabed can be found at the top of the mountains.

The Troodos Mountain range is volcanic in its origin, and what is now Cyprus could once be found at the bottom of the ocean (90 million years ago)!
