Ιστορία

Η Λεμεσός κτίστηκε ανάμεσα σε δύο αρχαίες πόλεις, την Αμαθούντα και το Κούριον και κατά τη διάρκεια της Βυζαντινής κυριαρχίας ήταν γνωστή ώς Νεάπολης(Νέα Πόλη). Το ιστορικό κέντρο της Λεμεσού βρίσκεται γύρω απο το μεσαιωνικό κάστρο της Λεμεσού και το παλιό λιμάνι. Σήμερα η πόλη απλώνεται κατά μήκος της ακτής της Μεσογείου και έχει επεκταθεί πολύ μακρύτερα απο το κάστρο και το λιμάνι, με τα προάστια της, που εκτείνεται κατα μήκος της ακτής στην Αμαθούντα. Στα δυτικά της πόλης βρίσκεται η περιοχή Ακρωτήρι και της Δεκέλειας.

DESTINATIONS

Ένας κοσμοπολίτικος παραθαλάσσιος προορισμός με μια μοναδική ταυτότητα, με βάση την πλούσια ιστορία της και τον πολιτισμό με ειδικά χαρακτηριστικά της την μεγάλη ποικιλία δραστηριοτήτων για τουρισμό.

Η Μαρίνα Λεμεσού συνδυάζει κομψές κατοικίες και μια πλήρης Μαρίνα με μια δελεαστική ποικιλία απο εστιατόρια και καταστήματα.

Η Μαρίνα βρίσκεται στη καρδιά της ζωντανής αυτής πόλης, προσφέρει πολυτελή διαμερίσματα και αποκλειστικές βίλες με δική τους ιδιωτική προβλήτα και άμεση πρόσβαση στην παραλία. Με εξαιρετικά επιθυμιτές κατοικίες και παροχή εγκαταστάσεων όπως σπα, γυμναστηρίου και ψυχαγωγικές εγκαταστάσεις, η Μαρίνα Λεμεσού είναι ένα απο τα διαμάντια της πόλης.
Η μαρίνα μπορεί να φιλοξενήσει 650 σκάφη αναψυχής απο 8m εώς 110m με μια ομάδα απο έμπειρους επαγγελματίες για να εξασφαλιστεί η ομαλή λειτουργία όλων των ενεργειών.

Το ιστορικό κέντρο της Λεμεσού βρίσκεται γύρω απο το μεσαιωνικό κάστρο της Λεμεσού και το παλιό λιμάνι. Σήμερα η πόλη απλώνεται κατά μήκος της ακτής της Μεσογείου και έχει επεκταθεί πολύ μακρύτερα απο το κάστρο και το λιμάνι, με τα προάστιά της, που εκτείνονται κατα μήκος της ακτής στην Αμαθούντα. Στα δυτικά της πόλης βρίσκεται το Ακρωτήρι, περιοχή εδάφους της Βρετανίας.
Αυτό που γνωρίζουμε σήμερα ως παλιό λιμάνι Λεμεσού ήταν το κύριο λιμάνι της πόλης, με τη κατασκευή του μέχρι το 1973. Τα αρχικά του θεμέλια τέθηκαν κατά τη διάρκεια της βρετανικής κατοχής του νησιού στα τέλη του 19ου αιώνα. Μέχρι και το 1974, η βρετανική RAF 1153 Marine Μονάδα τοποθετήθηκε στο δυτικό τμήμα του λιμανιού.

Με το πέρασμα του χρόνου, άλλαξε απο λιμάνι φορτίων και τερματικό σταθμό επιβατών με την τρέχουσα χρήση του ως κατάλυμμα, σταθμό αλιευτικών σκαφών κλπ. Μετά απο αρχιτεκτονικό διαγωνισμό, τα σχέδια έχουν τεθεί για την αναδιοργάνωση της περιοχής και την μετατροπή της σε ένα πιο λειτουργικό κέντρο αναψυχής. Για το λόγο αυτό το παλιό λιμάνι είχε επίσημα κλείσει και το έργο ξεκίνησε μετά απο κάποιες καθυστερήσεις με το όνομα Μαρίνα Λεμεσού το 2010.

Η παραλία της Λεμεσού βρίσκεται μπροστά απο το κέντρο της πόλης, το οποίο τοποθετείται δίπλα στο παλιό λιμάνι μέχρι και τη παραλία Ολύμπιον και είναι ένα απο τα πιο όμορφα πάρκα στην λεκάνη της Μεσογείου.

Στο πολυλειτουργικό πάρκο του Μώλου στη Λεμεσό υπάρχουν εκατοντάδες δέντρα, πεζόδρομοι, ποδηλατόδροιμοι, υπάιθριο γυμναστήριο, γλυπτά απο Ελληνοκύπριους ακι Έλληνες και διεθνείς καλλιτέχνες, χώροι πρασίνου, μεγάλες και μικρές αποβάθρες, παιδικές χαρές, συντριβάνια και εστιατόρια.

Νυχτερινή Ζωή

Limassol’s historical centre is located around its medieval Limassol Castle and the Old Port. Today the city spreads along the Mediterranean coast and has extended much farther than the castle and port, with its suburbs stretching along the coast to Amathus. To the west of the city is the Akrotiri Area of the British Overseas Territory of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.
The Limassol Castle is situated in the centre of old Limassol, is a remnant from the presence of Crusaders on the island. It was built in the 13th century on the site of an earlier Byzantine castle and has been converted today into the Cyprus Medieval Museum.

The Limassol Castle / The Medieval Castle was built by the Byzantines around 1000 A.D., was where Richard the Lionheart allegedly married Queen Berengaria of Navarre in 1911 and crowned her Queen of England – the first Coronation and Royal Marriage to take place out of England. Its grounds house the Medieval Museum of Cyprus displaying interesting pottery, tombstones, coats of arms, carvings and reliefs.

The Limassol Marina will provide for the mooring of yachts at sea and on shore. Additionally, the project includes the development of residential, commercial units as well as buildings for cultural uses.

The location selected for the development of the Limassol Marina is adjacent to the heart of Limassol, making it a landmark development for the locals and an attraction for the visitors. Carefully designed to blend with the surrounding area of the old port, the old town and the castle, the project aims to become a unique residential and leisure destination.

The Limassol Marina is expected to enhance Nautical Tourism and put Cyprus at the centre of the yachting destination map. The project will also contribute to the upgrading and significant differentiation of the tourist product of Limassol.
