Kelefos Bridge is an excellent example of a single arch medieval Venetian bridge built between (1489–1571) when copper was mined in Cyprus and traded with Egypt for silk and gold.

The demand of quality trading routes resulted in construction of dozens stone bridges in mountains, used for camel trails connecting distant mines in Troodos Mountains with the islands ports.

Kelefos Bridge spans the Dhiarizos river in the mountains of Paphos. It is located at the borders of Phini, Agios Nicolaos and Pera Vasa close to the Arminou Dam. This one arch stone bridge has 10.70m span and 10.7m width.
