The Larnaca region

Larnaca is the third largest city on the southern coast of Cyprus after Nicosia and Limassol. It has a population of 143,367 (2011) and is the island's second largest commercial port and an important tourist resort. The island's largest airport, Larnaca International Airport is located on the outskirts of the city to the south. One of Cyprus' four official entry points, by sea is located at Larnaca Marina. Cyprus is situated in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. The island is loved for its mild climate, sunshine, unspoilt beaches, bustling towns and historical momuments, making it an ideal holiday destination for families and experienced travellers alike.

History

The archaeological sites of Kittim and Kiteon have remains that date from the 13th century BC. The area was built by Achaean Greeks, and later rebuilt by Phoenicians. The remains of the sites include cyclopean walls and a complex of five temples.

The marble bust of Zeno stands at the crossroads near the American Academy. Zeno was born in Kition in 334 BC. After studying philosophy in Athens, he founded the famous Stoic school of philosophy.

Near Larnaca International Airport is the Larnaca Salt Lake.[6] The lake fills with water during the winter and is visited by flocks of flamingoes who stay here from November until the end of March. It dries up in the summer. It once yielded a good quality of salt, which is scraped from the dried surface. The salt from this lake is now considered unfit for human consumption. About halfway between the monument of Zeno and the salt lake on the right is the underground chapel of Ayia Phaneromeni. It is a rock cavern with two chambers. The structure suggests that it once was a pagan tomb, possibly dating back to Phoenician times. The place is credited with various magical properties: thus those who suffer from headaches or other diseases walk three times round it and leave pieces of clothing or tufts of their hair on the grill in front of the south window. It is also much frequented by girls, who come here to pray for the safety of overseas lovers. The Church of Lazarus (Agios Lazaros) is another magnificent[citation needed] Orthodox Church in Larnaca that was built in the town over the tomb of St. Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha. He died here and was buried in the church named after him. In 890 AD, his tomb was found bearing the inscription "Lazarus, bishop of Larnaca. Four days dead. Friend of Jesus." The marble sarcophagus can be seen inside the church under the Holy of Holies.

Cuisine

The beaches of Larnaca are lined with nearly identical seafood restaurants catering to tourists. Although there are many continental and international restaurants in Larnaca, visitors do not miss out on indulging in the local food. Many of the staple dishes involve beans, such as fasolaki (French beans cooked in red wine with lamb), and louvi me lahana (black-eyed beans with chard). The mezes, or appetizers, are particularly delicious and are plentiful enough to constitute meals. Some of the standard appetizers are potato salad, kohlrabi salad, and hot grilled black olives. The next course may include Cyprus village sausage and sheftalia, dolmades and keftedes, kolokassi in tomato sauce, and several aubergine-based dishes. Baked or grilled lamb (souvla) usually appears somewhere in the course of dining, as does some kind of fish. The slow pace of eating and the series of food courses makes dining in Larnaca a true delight.

Festivals

Much of the activity is centered around the city promenade during the major festivals. The most important of these is Kataklysmos or the Festival of the Flood, celebrated in early summer with a series of cultural events. The festival used to last for about a week, but, in recent years, with the increased commercialism of peripheral stalls, rides and temporary loukmades restaurants, the festival been has extended to about three weeks, during which the seafront is closed to traffic in the evenings. Loukmades is a sweet delicacy.

Pano Lefkara

Kato (Lower) Lefkara is a village of the Larnaca district and it is located about 34 kilometres south-west of the city of Larnaca.

The community is built on an average altitude of 480 metres. The terrain is hilly and the altitude in the north-east of the settlement reaches up to 417 metres ("Shinokefalos" hilltop). The landscape is fragmented by the rivers Syrkatis and Argaki, and of St. Minas, all tributaries of the Pentaschoinos river.

Kato Lefkara receives an annual rainfall of about 570 millimetres. In the village's limited cultivable land, vines (of wine-making varieties), olive, almond, and carob trees, a few citrus-trees, forage plants, broad beans, a few fruit-trees (fig, pomegranate, and plum trees), and very few vegetables are cultivated. However, the village's greatest part is uncultivated and wild, natural vegetation grows in it, mainly pine-trees, thorny burnets and brooms, sages (cistus), thyme, and wild carob and olive trees.

As far as transportation is concerned, Kato Lefkara is connected to the neighbouring village of Pano (Upper) Lefkara in the north-west (about 1 km), with the village Kato Drys in the south-west (about 4 km.), and with the Skarinou Station in the south-east via the Nicosia - Limassol Highway (about 8 km).

The art of needlework (embroidery) developed in Kato Lefkara, as also in the neighbouring village of Pano Lefkara, reaching to very high levels. A large variety of "lefkaritika" embroideries is manufactured, which are characterised by the affluence and the diversity of their designs.

We stumbled upon this cottage and It was truly an amazing experience. We were the first occupants to rent it since it was advertised. The owner is a very beautiful and a generous lady who went to great efforts to make us feel at home. if you want a peaceful holiday in a beautiful location then this is it. The house is very cozy and homely. We would love to go back again...
