Limassol’s lively old town district is the most interesting part of the city to explore. Right in the center, on the main square, is Limassol castle, built in the 14th century on the site of an earlier Byzantine construction. The main square is rimmed by cafés and restaurants always bustling with Limassol’s bright young things.
Limassol Castle dates back to the Medieval period and is located at the center of Limassol, very close to the Limassol harbour. The castle was built during the Ottoman rule in the island but archaeological evidence suggest that before its current form there were earlier architectural faces, older and larger. There you will find a variety of coffee shops, restaurants with different cuisines and small tourist shops.
