Episkopi, also known as Episcopi, Episcopí, Piskobu, is a village 11 kilometres Northeast from the city of Paphos in Cyprus.

Episkopi was built on the west side of Ezousa River valley. The area’s geological configurations and the existence of the valleys with their permanent water supply have resulted in a large spectrum of species and habitations.
