Limassol is situated between two of the most spectacular archaeological sites in Cyprus; built on cliff tops the ancient cities of Amathous and Kourion are situated East and West respectively in the city with spectacular views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Unearthed at Amathous the largest stone vase ever discovered (resting in the Louvre Museam in Paris) is just one of the finds that have made their way abroad to international museums from these ancient sites.
Limassol is the second largest city in Cyprus and is the island’s main port, a main tourist centre and the centre of the wine industry of the island.
Limassol Old Town
The narrow streets of the old town of Limassol are radiating out from the old fishing harbour and brings you in the heart of the old town where the Limassol Medieval Castle is located. Now the castle houses the Cyprus Medieval Museum.
The Medieval Castle built by the Byzantines around 1000 A.D. and was where Richard the Lionheart, King of England, married Queen Berengaria of Navarre in 1911 and crowned her Queen of England – the first Coronation and Royal Marriage to take place out of England. Its grounds house the Medieval Museum of Cyprus displaying interesting pottery, tombstones, coats of arms, carvings and reliefs.
Very close to the Castle, the Municipal Market provides house to the atmosphere, the abundance of fruits and vegetables, the traditional merchants and the customers that arrive there from surrounding villages, all draw an exciting picture.
The location selected for the development of the Limassol Marina is adjacent to the heart of Limassol, making it a landmark development for the locals and an attraction for the visitors. Carefully designed to blend with the surrounding area of the old port, the old town and the castle, the project aims to become a unique residential and leisure destination.
The Limassol Marina will provide for the mooring of yachts at sea and on shore. The project contributes to the upgrading and significant differentiation of the tourist product of Limassol.
