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 Amathus and Kourion (Curium).
Cyprus was characterised by its great number of Latin bishops.
This lasted until the occupation of Cyprus by the Ottomans in AD 1570.
Cyprus was therefore handed over to the French dynasty of the house of Lusignan, thus establishing the medieval Kingdom of Cyprus.
Limassol was built between two ancient cities, Amathus and Kourion, and during Byzantine rule it was known as Neapolis (new town).
Limassol was probably built after Amathus had been ruined.
