Limassol (Lemesós) is the second largest city in Cyprus after Nicosia, and is located on the southern coast of Cyprus. It is situated between the ancient towns of Amathus and Curium. The English King Richard the Lionheart destroyed Amathus in 1191 and Lemesos (Limassol) was probably built after Amathus had been ruined. However, the town of Lemesos (Limassol) itself has been inhabited since antiquity and Graves that found in the area date back to 2.000 B.C.
Limassol is famous for its long cultural tradition, as well as its major folklore festivities. Visitors have the chance to experience numerous cultural activities and more, such as theatrical, dancing and musical shows, in addition to visiting museums and archaeological sites around the city, which provide an astonishing combination of Frankish, Byzantine, Ottoman and contemporary influences.
With each passing year, more and more local and foreign companies choose Limassol as their headquarters. Significant land development projects have been undertaken and impressive buildings are being constructed along the coastal front of Limassol, aiming to meet the needs created by this growth.
