seaside town of Limassol lies between the most important ancient
cities of Curium and Amathus. Many archaeological sites are close
to Limassol the nearest being the medieval Castle where eight centuries
ago the English King
Richard the Lionheart married Berengaria of Navarre.
In modern times Limassol has quickly become a town on the move.
Traditionally the home of wine industry, it developed into a large
centre of trade and industry and has become the island's largest
seaport. Limassol is now a successful centre for shipping and other
international business companies. In fact, most of the international
companies registered in Cyprus have their offices in Limassol and
in several cases these offices are World Headquarters.
In parallel to trade industry, Limassol, by virtue of its excellent
geographic position as well as the graciousness of its people,
has developed into a major tourist destination and it now provides
both business and leisure facilities of the highest standards.
Among the many good reasons why Limassol has become an
attractive choice for international investors are:
- Long tradition as leading trade and industry centre.
- Pioneer of modern corporate facilities in Cyprus .
- Geographically central for access to all other towns.
- Largest port facilities.
- Leader in shipping services.
- Proximity to the island's mountain resorts.
- Easy access to sports such as skiing, sea sports and golf.
