Avgorou (Greek Αυγόρου) is a village in southwestern Ammochostos province, Cyprus. It is close to the communities of Frenaros, Sotira, Liopetri and Ormidia (Larnaca province).

Avgorou is the home town of Andreas Karios who fell on September 2, 1958, in the Battle of Liopetri during the EOKA struggle. On July 5 of that same year, British troops fired on locals protesting their presence and killed pregnant mother Loukia Papageorgiou.
