Over the years, the locals would cultivate the fertile steep mountain slopes via an intricate system of drystone walling using local stone to build the retaining walls. They were able to turn inaccessible areas into vineyards and vegetable gardens The ancient building method of drystone walling used in Cyprus has been included on the Unesco list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
