The archaeological site of Choirokoitia stands as an exceptionally well-preserved Neolithic Age settlement, earning its rightful place as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.

Throughout the settlement, one can find remains from various stages of the Neolithic Age, offering valuable insights into the ancient living conditions of the region and the widespread influence of Neolithic culture across the area.

As a tribute to the past, five characteristic cylindrical-shaped dwellings have been meticulously reconstructed close to the original settlement. These reconstructions faithfully replicate the construction techniques and materials utilized during Neolithic times. Inside, replicas of household objects found within the original dwellings provide a vivid glimpse into life as it once was. Surrounding the dwellings, the vegetation comprises native plants and trees that have thrived in Cyprus since the Neolithic era.
