Agios Konstantinos Village is located in the Limassol District of Cyprus and lies close to Agios Pavlos, Arakapas, Eptagonia, Dierona and Kalo Chorio Villages.

The first homes of the village were built a short distance north from the present location of the village. The houses were scattered over a wide area and thus were easy targets for attacks from Arab pirates originating from the neighbouring lands. The villagers slowly moved to the present location of the village as a means to better defend themselves from these attacks.

The village has a long history, dating back to Roman times, who were very active in extracting the large copper deposits found in the area. The copper processing was undertaken on a large scale as can be confirmed by the many furnaces discovered in the area.

The population of the village reached it's peak when 272 permanent residents were recorded. The last census of 2001 recorded a total of 164 permanent residents.

The Old Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni Church was built in the 18th century and is built on the original site of a Byzantine Monastery. The church has been used as a chapel since 2006, due to the new Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni Church being built.
