It is set  among pines, cypress and eucalyptus acacia, terebinths mastic trees, olive trees and wildflowers. The area is ideal for cycling and trekking excursions. Kornos is especially known since ancient times for its pottery craft, the reputation of which has surpassed the borders of Cyprus and received world-wide recognition, In the village there are ancient remains showing that it was inhabited since antiquity. Ali Bey, the Spanish Domingo , who visited the village in 1806 writes: “I could not obtain any information about the origin of the village. It must be old. It may contain thirty houses at most. Its position is very pleasant, in the midst of a small valley ridden with olive and locust trees. Almost all the inhabitants are occupied with pottery. The surrounding mountains are covered with cypress trees that grow in dense tufts here and there.”
