Venue The event will take place at Lythrodontas village. Lythrodontas (Greek: Λυθροδόντας) is a village located in the Nicosia District of Cyprus. It is 31 kilometres outside Nicosia. Lythrodontas is built on the foothill of the mountain region of Machairas and is covered by the green colour of the olive groves. The meaning of the name of the village Lythrodontas has two variants of the same version. According to a document in the community council of the village, it is reported that Lythrodontas derives its name from the first settler of the village called "Erythrodonta" because he had red teeth. A variant of this version is that Erythrodonta was as a landowner of the area, whom, over the years people started to call him Lythrodonta. So the area got its name from him. Taking a walk in the village you can see the main church of Lythrodontas which is dedicated to Saint Therapon. In addition, there is the church of Archangel Michael, the church of Agios Georgios, the church of Panagia and the church of Agios Nikolaos. In the southwest of Lythrodontas stands an old monastery of Prophet Elias, which today (2018) is owned by Machairas.
