The town of Lefke ...
The town of Lefke, near Güzelyurt, possesses much more important historical riches than its neighbour. Lefke is a mixture of coastline and vast mountains, lush with citrus groves. It is the only place in Cyprus where the Yafa oranges are grown, and it is also popular for growing soft fruit. Three dams provide constant water all year round, which is why agriculture is so successful in this region.
The coastline has a number of restaurants where you can enjoy Turkish cuisine or fresh fish, and make use of their beach facilities. Working your way up to Lefke’s town centre takes you through mountains overlooked by the Trodos, so close that you can see its snow capped summits in the winter
Close to Lefke you will find the ancient city of Soli. The origins of Soli can be traced back to the 6th century BC, but it came to prominence during the Roman Period and was destroyed by Arab invaders in the 7th century. You can see a Roman theatre, Basilica and Agora which were discovered in 1929. The theatre is still used today for concerts and plays.
