Lace, Silver & Salt

Head towards Nicosia, past Limassol towards the famous village of Lefkara where time has stood still and the skill of lacework and silver craftsmanship is still practiced in the age old tradition.

Take your credit card with as you are bound to find something special in one of the many family run shops nestling in the white hills.

We recommend a picnic lunch in the hills overlooking the valleys or choose one of the many local taverns in Lefkara.  From there head to the town of Larnaca where one of the two salt lakes on the Island is situated.  Visit the Hala Sultan Tekeshi, where Fatima, the preferred wife of Mohammed fell off her Donkey and died. This spot is still revered by many Muslims as one of the most Holy destinations on their travelings.

Also visit the St Lazarus Church which is one of a few five-vaulted Byzantine churches in the world.
