Pano Lefkara Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 104 photos
The beautiful village of Lefkara has been restored to its original condition and I urge every tourist or traveller who comes to the island
to include Lefkara as a ‘must visit spot’. I can assure, it is worth it!
It lies on the hills in the outskirts of Larnaca district, located ten kms off the Nicosia –Limassol highway in a distance less than 50 km from Larnaca, Nicosia, and Limassol.
You will love walking through its cobbled streets with the beautiful architecture.
The village is divided in two parts, - the upper and the lower Lefkara.
Lefkara embroidery is done on pure Irish linen, and the families of Lefkara have been practising their art for centuries.
Filigree silverware is made in Lefkara, and you will see much of it during your visit.
A village famous for its silverware, and as you walk through its narrow streets you will have the opportunity to see a number of them at work.
The art of silverware flourishes a lot in Lefkara.
