Rock of Digenis (Petra tou Romiou)

 

Α strong tradition persists regarding the solitary rock north of the Fabrica hίll, on the way to Pafos harbour, concerning the relationship between Digenis and Rigaina. It is said that Rigaina, whom Degenis desired, had her house built on top of this hill. As in almost all folk tales, Rigaina would only marry Digenis if he managed to transport water for her from some distant location, which in this case was either Mavrokolympos or Tala. Even though this was a Herculian task, Digenis undertook it, transporting the water through clay conduits, traces of which can still be seen east of Chlorakas village. However, Rigaina did not keep her promise, something which enraged Digenis, who threw a huge rock at her from the Moutallos area, which landed right in front of her house. Rigaina replied with equal rage, throwing her spinning needle, a granite stele, at Digenis, which landed in the fields underneath the Moutallos rise.
