Lemesos is the second largest urban area in Cyprus following Lefkosia, and is considered to be the most integrated, cosmopolitan city of the island. Wrapped around a castle, the historic centre radiates out in a web of lanes where old, shuttered houses and modern boutiques intermingle. It’s an area buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants that are as popular with locals as with visitors.
It is the capital of international businesses, with numerous local and international companies, and has one of the busiest ports in the Mediterranean transit trade and the largest port in Cyprus.
For travellers looking for a holiday that takes in more than sun and sea, Lemesos lies at the very heart of one of the island’s richest areas for exploration.
