Limassol Tourist Attractions
Limassol, Cyprus's second largest town, a center of industry and an important exporting port, lies on the south coast of the island between the two ancient cities of Curium to the west and Amathus to the east.
From 1291 Limassol was a base of the Templars and the Knights of St John, and here King Richard the Lionheart married Berengaria of Navarre. Among features of interest is the Castle, now housing the District Museum, and the municipal park (minizoo).
Modern Limassol is a tourist center, with numerous hotels and apartment blocks in the town. It also has a large marina that takes in cruise ships from around the world.
