Lefkara Folk Art Museum


Formerly the home of one of Lefkara’s wealthiest families, this restored building is set around a large courtyard complete with outdoor oven and pomegranate and citrus trees. The ground floor has information boards on Lefkara's history and a typical 19th-century dining area. Upstairs there are examples of original lace and silverwork as well as traditionally styled bedrooms, complete with antique dressers, mirrors and beds.
