The old town Lemesos (Limassol) is the heart of the city with its narrow streets radiating out from the old fishing harbor to the new luxurious marina and the medieval castle. Home to busy shopping streets and intriguing historic attractions, this vibrant area of the city is equally popular with locals and tourists.

The streets of the historic center encircle the town’s landmark medieval castle, which now houses the Cyprus Medieval Museum displaying interesting pottery, tombstones, coats of arms, carvings and reliefs. Locals and tourists visit the square outside the castle and stop for a drink at a bar or coffee shop. The medieval castle was the site of the royal wedding in the Middle Ages between Richard the Lionheart, King of England, and Berengaria of Navarre, the first Coronation and Royal Marriage to take place out of England.

The old fishing harbor has been renovated to an attractive outdoors area with restaurants and coffee shops, which is smoothly connected to a 2km long seaside Sculpture Park (Molos), where you’ll find more than 20 public sculptures designed by well-known artists such as Helene Black and George Tsaras.

In the historic center there is also the Old Town’s Turkish quarter and the beautiful Grand Mosque, which continues to be used by Turkish Cypriots and Muslims living in Limassol. Dating back to the 16th century, the mosque’s elegant minaret is surrounded by towering palm trees. On the edge of the Old Town there is Agia Napa Cathedral which has ornate twin-towered façade, which was designed in the Greek Orthodox style of religious architecture.
