Welcome note by the Mayor
Lemesos is the second biggest town of Cyprus and the biggest Municipality indeed, while, after the tragic events of the Turkish invasion occurred in 1974, it has become one of the greatest Mediterranean harbours for the transhipment of goods. Therefore, Lemesos has ever since developed rapidly and is actually one of the most important maritime, commercial, tourism and service centres in the area.
Lemesos is also known for its long tradition in cultural issues. It gives the possibility to the visitors to attend a great number of activities and visit many museums and archaeological sites, which they are interested in so far and it combines, in a unique way, ancient, Frank, Byzantine and other modern historic influences.
Both citizens and municipal leaders, we will work jointly to build Lemesosl of tomorrow. I am convinced, indeed, that we will achieve our objectives, which are: to improve the inhabitants' quality of life, to transform our town into an educational and cultural centre, to revive the old Lemesos in the eyes of the new generations, generating nostalgia in all's heart and to win over a promising future for all the Limassolians.
Going through the pages of the Lemesos Municipality's site, you will find useful information about our town, its historic monuments, its cultural activities, its development projects, the Municipality's services and other supplementary information of interest.
