Lefkara Lace, UNESCO Choirokoitia and Larnaca from Nicosia

06 Hours

Description

It is primarily an exploration trip of the stone-built village of Pano Lefkara (a production center of the famed lace) and of 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 manmade lake, visit other attractions on the way (depending on pickup location) such as Panagia Angeloktisti church in Kiti and/or have a meal at a village restaurant.

Itinerary

    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).
