Limassol is the second largest town in Cyprus after the capital Nicosia.
The medieval Castle of Limassol houses the medieval collection of the Cyprus Museum since 1987. Although there existed earlier architectural phases of an older and larger structure, the present edifice dates to the period of Ottoman rule.
