The buildings were constructed of stone foundations with mud-brick upper walling. Sadly it has been restored using cement to consolidate it, giving an unrealistic appearance. It is quite unremarkable in appearance, the buildings seemingly merging into each other, but it is for its artefacts that...More

Loved this because I had never seen such a settlement before and it is really informative. The rebuilt homes are interesting and once again made me realize that people throughout the ages have always worked to add ornamentation to their life. As with many sites...More

This UNESCO site has some interesting ruins, but most are off limits. There are some good reconstructions and a nice walking circuit. The age of the place is astounding.

This is one of the most interesting sites in Cyprus. This settlement dates back to 7000-8000BC. Spend some time to read the detailed information plates and discover how organized was this community. Perhaps the best part of the site are the reconstructed houses. You will...More

Surreal to wander around here imagining what it was like 9,000 years ago. These guys were super smart to build what they did. Amazing engineering intuition displayed in construction. The structure of the society and village life would have been outstanding back then. They had...More

Taking the bus from Limassol I came to the Neolithic Settlement. It is convenient as buses running from Limassol to Larnaca or Nicosia make a stop here for 5 minutes. What you can do is come by bus, but be sure to find connecting bus...More
