The Old Port in Limassol was built in the 1950s and served both as the passenger and commercial port of Limassol. When the New Port was opened in 1973, it resorted back to its humble fishing roots with the presence of just small fishing boats and recreational boats. In recent years, it has developed into a popular destination for tourists and locals with its rich variety of cafés and restaurants. It provides a picturesque setting beside the city's centre for an afternoon coffee or lunch/evening meal.
There is no shortage of ice-cream shops! There have been fewer tourists due to COVID this year and even the locals are not as numerous with the restrictions and time of year.

If you are visiting the centre of Limassol, the Old Port is the perfect place to get away from the traffic and noise of the city for some time out. It is also adjacent to the impressive Limassol Marina, which will feature in a future blog.
The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.
