Episkopi is a village located about 14 kilometers west of the city of Limassol and 40 kilometers east of Paphos connected with them by a modern intercity highway.
The small distance between Episkopi and the city of Limassol, and also the opportunities for employment in the area because of the operation of the British bases, the utilization of the important archaeological sites for the purposes of tourism, as well as the rare natural beauty of the region, have contributed to the rapid development of the community, transforming it to a modern town with all the comforts that has nothing to be jealous of from the other cities of Cyprus.
There is a small but interesting museum containing various artifacts from Curium. Other features of interest within easy reach of Episkopi are the citrus-fruit plantations of Phasouti, the monasteries of Trooditissa and Omodos (Stavros, the Holy Cross) and the picturesque villages of Fini, Kilani, Platres, Prodromos and Tróodos in the Troodos Mountains.
The archaeological findings, found in almost the entire area of the community, reveal that during ancient times Episkopi was connected to the city of Kourion. During the first centuries AD, Episkopi succeeded Kourion as a center of the region and a seat of bishops.
Masse De Latri provides the information that in the 13th century Episkopi belonged to the aristocratic family of John D' Imbelin, Count of Giaffa.
