"Paralimni" Paralimni by grayfo

Paralimni Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 13 photos

Paralimni is situated in the South East of Cyprus, a little way inland. Within the town square are three churches and an open-air theatre. The most interesting church is the oldest. It is open to the public and now serves as a museum. A number of quiet bars and cafés can be found in and around the square. These make a very pleasant change from the noisy English disco-bars of Ayia Napa and the moronic banter of the English DJs.

The name of the town means “by the lake” from when Paralimni was located by the shores of a lake that only filled throughout the winter months.
