    Evretou is a village located ten kilometers southeast of Polis and three kilometers northeast of Loukrounou. Goodwin suggests that Evretou means “place where something may be foundâ€￾ in Greek. Turkish Cypriot sources, however, claim that the name derives from the word evrima or evredi, which in Cypriot Greek means “hidden treasure.â€￾ In 1958 Turkish Cypriots adopted the alternative name Dereboyu, meaning “along the stream.â€￾
    When the Turkish invaded Cyprus in 74, the Turkish people were given 60 mins to gather their possessions and leave or be prisoners or war or at worst shot. It was strange walking round these places where once a small settlement lived until that fateful day.
    When we visited only 1 villager had returned, and didnt want to be photographed. Visited with my guide Mike Mccormac (R.I.P.)
