Limassol

Limassol is a city on the southern coast of Cyprus and capital of the eponymous district. Limassol is the second largest urban area in Cyprus after Nicosia, with an urban population of 183,658 and a metropolitan population of 239,842. Limassol has been ranked by TripAdvisor as the 3rd up-and-coming destination in the world, in its Top 10 Traveler’s Choice Destinations on the Rise; the city is ranked 89th worldwide in Mercer's Quality of Living Survey. In the ranking published by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network, Limassol has been classified global city in the 4th category. Limassol was built between two ancient Greek cities and Kourion, during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis. Limassol's historical centre is located around the Old Port. Today the city spreads along the Mediterranean coast and has extended much farther than the castle and port, with its suburbs stretching along the coast to Amathus. To the west of the city, is the Akrotiri Area of the British Overseas Territory of Akrotiri and Dhekelia.

The city of Limassol is situated between the ancient cities of Kourion. Limassol was built after Amathus had been ruined. However, the town of Limassol has been inhabited since ancient times. Graves found there date back to 2000 BC and others date back to the 8th and 4th centuries BC; these few remains show that a small colonisation must have existed which did not manage to develop and flourish. Ancient writers mention nothing about the foundation of the town. In 85 BC, Armenian emperor Tigranes the Great had reached Limassol in order to establish security and protection of local Greek allies against Rome in a result followed by his conquest of Syria and Anatolia. According to the Council of Chalcedon which took place in 451, the local bishop as well as the bishops of Amathus and Arsinoe were involved in the foundation of the city, which would be known by the names of Theodosiana and Neapolis. Bishop Leontios of Neapolis was an important church writer in the 7th century; the records of the 7th Synod refer to it.

The town was known as Lemesos in the 10th century. The history of Limassol is known by the events associated with the Third Crusade; the king of England, Richard the Lionheart, was travelling to the Holy Land in 1190. His fiancée Berengaria and his sister Joan, Queen of Sicily, were travelling on a different ship; because of a storm, the ship with the queens arrived in Limassol. Isaac Komnenos, the renegade Byzantine Greek governor of Cyprus invited the queens ashore, with the intention of holding them to ransom, but they refused. So he refused they had to put out to sea again or yield to capture; when Richard arrived in Limassol and met Isaac Komnenos, he asked him to contribute to the crusade for the liberation of the Holy Land. While at the beginning Isaac had accepted, he on refused to give any help. Richard chased him and arrested him. Richard celebrated his marriage with Berengaria who had received the crown as queen of England in Cyprus. Richard destroyed Amathus and the inhabitants were transferred to Limassol.

A year in AD 1191 Cyprus was sold for the sum of 100,000 bezants to the Templars, rich monks and soldiers whose aim was the protection of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The knights enforced high taxes, in order to get back the money, given for the purchase of Cyprus; this led to the revolt of the Cypriots. Richard accepted their request and a new purchaser was found: Guy de Lusignan, a Roman Catholic from Poitou. Cyprus was therefore handed over to the French dynasty of the house of Lusignan, thus establishing the medieval Kingdom of Cyprus. For a period of about three centuries 1175–1489, Limassol enjoyed remarkable prosperity. Cyprus was characterised by its great number of Latin bishops; this lasted until the occupation of Cyprus by the Ottomans in AD 1570. Latin battalions; the settlement of merchants in Cyprus and in Limassol in the 13th century led to the financial welfare of its inhabitants. Its harbour as a centre of transportation and commerce, contributed to the financial and cultural development.

Cyprus was sold in 1489 to Venice by the Cypriot Queen Catherine Cornaro. The Venetians did not have Cyprus' best interest at heart, they were only interested in receiving the taxes and in exploiting the country’s resources; the Venetians strengthened the Castle of Limassol. The Ottoman Empire occupied it. Limassol was conquered in July 1570 without any resistance; some neighbourhoods to the east of the city were predominantly Greek, to the west predominantly Turkish with an evenly mixed area around the castle. The church played an important role in the education of Greeks during the years 1754–1821. During those years new schools were set up in all the towns. Greek intellectuals used to teach Greek history and French; the following schools operated in the town of Limassol: The Greek School, established in 1819. The first public school, established in 1841; the Girls’ School, established in 1861. The British took over in Cyprus in 1878; the first British governor of Limassol was Colonel Warren. He showed a particular interest in Limassol and from the first days the condition of the town showed an improvement.
