Limassol, the second largest city on the island has a perfect location south-central of Cyprus. Paphos and Ayia Napa, both major tourist areas, are both close. Limassol itself has a lot of tourist attractions. The city has 16 kilometers of sandy coastline along the Mediterranean Sea, which make it a fabulous destination for the beach lovers. The main attraction is, of course, the Limassol Castle. See the rich collection of tombstones and pottery here from the Pre-Neolithic and Byzantine times.
There is a beautiful promenade along the seafront. The sculpture park is also located on the seafront. It has beautiful structures that have been made by Greek, Cypriot, and many international artists.
Limassol is also known as the city of festivals. If you visit in February, you can see the 10-day carnival. The beer festival is held in July, while in September, there is the annual wine festival. Then there is also the flower festival in May.
The Limassol Castle goes back to the 14th century. It is located close to the old harbor near the sea. The structure you will see now was constructed during the Ottoman times, but excavations have revealed that there used to be a larger Byzantine castle and Christian Basilica earlier. It was used as a defensive fort. There used to be prison cells and underground chambers.
According to legend, King Richard the Lionheart married Princess Berengaria of Navarre here in 1191.
You will now find the Cyprus Byzantine and Medieval Museum in the castle. There are many well preserved brass and bronze tableware, silver plates, weapons, armor, jewelry, woodcarvings, pottery, coins, and tombstones. You can also see events from the life of King David. The stairways, air shafts, and echoing vaults make the building interesting too. Awesome views from the roof.
