Description

It is primarily an exploration trip of the stone-built village of Pano Lefkara (a production center of the famed lace) and Unesco World Heritage Choirokoitia neolithic settlement. We normally also do birdwatching at one of three wetlands near Larnaca (Larnaka). Depending on travellers’ preferences and time availability, there may be possibilities to do a walk by Lefkara humanmade lake, visit other attractions on the way (depending on pickup location - e.g. Panagia Angeloktisti church in Kiti) and/or have a meal at a village restaurant.

Itinerary
  • Lefkara Laceexpand_more

    Stone-built Pano Lefkara acquired considerable wealth in the past century through production and trade of the famed Lefkaritika lace. As per local tradition, Leonardo da Vinci visited the village, loved and bought Lefkaritika lace. Besides meandering through the maze of the village, the village's central church is worth a visit (according to local tradition, it houses a piece from the Holy Cross).  

  • Choirokoitia expand_more

    Visit UNESCO World Heritage Choirokoitia neolithic site. Its convenient geographic location allows combos with an exploration of other worthy attractions nearby.

  • Lefkara manmade lakeexpand_more

    Subject to time availability, travellers could do a linear walk (going back and returning on the same route) on the dirt road around Lefkara humanmade lake, which is one of the most beautiful humanmade wetlands in Cyprus, having steep hills around it.

Thousands of flamingos find refuge during the cold months of the year here.
