From a legal point of view, it is administered as all other areas controlled by the government of the Republic of Cyprus.The village is special in the respect that it is the only settlement in Cyprus still inhabited by both its original Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot inhabitants. 850 of the inhabitants are Greek Cypriots and 487 are Turkish Cypriots. The village has three churches and one mosque.Pyla-Kokkinokremos is an archaeological site dating to the Late Bronze Age.HistoryPyla is among the oldest villages in Cyprus.
