TOUR

 


Ascending the Skarinou – Lefkara road, you will find the country church of St George on your right and -right after that –the small but very beautiful and picturesque village of Kato Lefkara. The village is literally buried in green that -in combination with the sky’s blue and the unique, panoramic view that the region offers –presents to one’s eyes a vast calmness and serenity.

Entering the village, the country church of Archangel Michael is on the right, dating back to the 12th century. Following is the large parking lot that was created so as to serve the village’s visitors. The parking lot is located next to the village’s plaza, which is stone-paved. Around the picturesque plaza there are several shops selling the traditional (silk) embroideries of Lefkara as well as various other products. All the little alleys of the village are paved with stones and -combined with the old traditional houses –lend a different note to the area.

Advancing into the village you will see the “Panagia Eleousa” church. From this particular venue the view is unique. One’s glance can reach all the way to the shores of Larnaca.

Behind the church stands the first Elementary School, which is now destined to become a Museum of Needlecraft. Close by you can also see the old olive-press where the village’s inhabitants used to produce their olive-oil in old times.




Going uphill you will come across the village’s coffeehouse on your right and the country church of Saint Marina on your left. Continuing our journey through the village, we will come across the second Elementary School, which is also being renovated in order to be converted into a communal building, housing the needs of the Community Council and the Cultural Center where the young people will spend their free time in a creative manner.

A bit further up is the country church of Saint Timotheos. Following the ascending little road we will once again find ourselves in the stone-paved plaza of the village.

Through this short tour we have tried to give you a little taste of the Kato Lefkara community. It is up to you to make a visit to our village so as to see from up close that the things we described to you above are way too few to match reality.
