Limassol (Turkish: Limasol) (Greek: Λεμεσός) is the second largest city (after the capital, Nicosia) of Cyprus. Limassol has become the principal sea port and has also developed into a significant tourist destination.
Limassol is the second largest town in Cyprus after Nicosia, with a population of approximately 200 000. Apart from being a major tourist destination, it is also a principal hub for international business in Cyprus. This gives Limassol a more cosmopolitan feel compared to other district centers. Recent renovation projects in the old town and old port area are seeking to rejuvenate the historic center, making it more accessible and interesting for sightseeing.
