Cyprus Land Theme Festival

Cyprus Landlittle island. A lot of history

The Cyprus Land project aims to travel the visitor back in time. Cyprus’s most important structures from the Middle Ages are recreated in miniature to illustrate, on a small scale, the way of life and economy of the castles and other monuments of Cyprus and to create a picture of life on the island when it was at the center of Mediterranean civilization.

Having painstakingly collected material regarding the major sites of the island, using modern technology and visualization tools, the theme park attempts to bring to life some of the scenes from the past. Relying on old prints, drawings and pictures and with the help of 3D printing, the original appearance of numerous monuments has been recreated.

This exhibition project is set to make a visitor’s experience more interesting, exciting and richer in knowledge about the wonderful island and the culture of its people.

Limassol wins second place as a ‘Destination of Sustainable Cultural Tourism’ in Europe!

karatello

Destination of Sustainable Cultural Tourism’ contest is organised by the European Cultural Tourism Network (ECTN), for all tourism destinations Europe-wide. The theme for the 2015 award calls for ‘Industrial Heritage Tourism’ and winners are recognised as ‘examples of excellence’ aiming to inspire and stimulate other European tourism destinations.

The Carob Mill was previously used in the 1800’s as a mere warehouse, and by the 1920’s was converted into a carob mill. By the year 1937, the carobs were exported for animal feed in the UK, Germany, Russia, France and Egypt and also used as a chocolate substitute in the sweet industry. The seeds, thus, enjoyed a particular great demand. The substance was later used in the photographic film manufacture industries and in Pharmaceutical industries respectively.

All this happening and vibrating in Limassol’s old city centre, the site is situated right next to the Medieval Castle; which was home to the only British Royal couple that ever got married outside Britain, Richard Lionheart and Berergaria. Today, as we speak, Limassol’s Medieval Castle is a most visited place for every holiday seeker, every tourist and every local as it has become one of the most recreational areas of the island.

At a time when cultural and heritage tourism is probably the fastest growing sector of all European tourism, Limassol continues to uphold and strengthen its place as a destination of quality with much more to offer than the typical ‘sun and sea’ tourism model.
