Dierona (Greek: Διερώνα) is a tiny semi-mountainous village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, located 2 km south of Arakapas at the foothills of the Troodos Mountains.

It boasts a glorious medley of water, mountains, and pretty-as-a picture little streets. The population, at the last count, is just over 250 people.

The village is close to the Wine Routes in the Commandaria area and stands at an altitude of 461 metres (1512.47 feet).

It is especially noteworthy for the picturesque arched Venetian Dierona Bridge, the Church of Archangel Michael and lush mandarin orchards, walnut trees and picturesque wooded mountainscape.

The village is equidistant between the mountains and the seaside at Amathus in Limassol, and easily reachable by a modern dual-lane road.

There is a popular Golf and Country Club in nearby Vikla.
