LIMASSOL MONUMENTS

Lemesos Medieval Castle / Cyprus Medieval Museum

The Lemesos Medieval Castle / Cyprus Medieval Museum is situated in the centre of the old town near the old port. The castle was built in the 13th century on the site of an earlier Byzantine castle and has been converted in the recent years into a museum. The Medieval Castle is possibly the town’s most popular attraction as, according to myth, this is where Richard the Lionheart married Princess Berengeria of Navarre, crowning her Queen of England in 1191. Cells in the basement were used as a prison until 1950.

Amathus Archaeological Site

Approximately half a mile from the hotel is the ancient town of Amathounta. Believed to be the first inhabited city of Lemesos, it dates back to 1100BC and constitutes one of the most significant ancient city-kingdoms of Cyprus. According to mythology, the city was founded by King Kiniras, and was later visited by Theseus, who left the pregnant Ariadne to be cared for after his battle with the Cretan Minotaur. A very important cult of Aphrodite/Astarte also flourished here. 

Over the years, excavations have revealed part of the acropolis and agora areas as well as part of the upper and lower city, including the stoae (covered walks), the baths and other adjacent buildings, four basilicas, the sanctuary of Aphrodite, an aqueduct and the harbour, the remarkable ruins of which now lie underwater and can be easily detected from shore. 

It is in Amathous that the world’s largest stone vase was found; it is now on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris. A striking sarcophagus also excavated here is now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and constitutes the single most important object in the Cesnola Collection.
