Lapithos

Lapithos

Because of the frequency of the Arab raids, the inhabitants of Lambousa moved their settlement to the skirt of the mountain and found the Lapta of the present day. The settlement in Lapta develops even further during the Lusignan period. In addition to Lapta, the excavations in the region reveal clues of settlements belonging to the calcolitic period, and chamber tombs belonging to the Iron Age.
