Paliometocho (Greek: Παλιομέτοχο [paʎoˈmetoxo]), officially Palaiometocho (Παλαιομέτοχο [paleoˈmetoxo]), is a village in the Nicosia District of Cyprus. Its name derives from the Greek palaio (old) and metochio (inn). It was probably given to it because it used to be a rest stop for pilgrims on their way to the Kykkos Monastery.[2] As of 2011, Paliometocho had a population of 4,145.
