Limassol Agora

Today I visited the Limassol Agora for the first time; it is impressive to see the 1918 Agora now restored and functioning over a hundred years later in 2020.


The word 'agora' will be familiar to Cypriot readers. In ancient Greek it meant 'gathering place' and in ancient cities, it served for commercial, civic, social, and religious activities. In modern Greek, it is the word for 'marketplace'.


There are numerous cafés and restaurants in the area surrounding the Agora.

To have a food court under one roof is an added advantage in this hot weather. It will also be cosy in the winter!

There is a wide selection of fast-food from fish to meat, pizza, pasta, Lebanese, Mexican and Cypriot cuisine and healthy salads.

There is a gourmet popcorn stand!

Some of the outlets still have to be occupied and some were not so busy although I was there before midday, which is still early for lunchtime. This space has great potential and could be a very popular meeting place for those who live in the centre of town. The café at the top of the building is the ideal place to relax and continue the habit of a century!

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another...
