Yesterday a news headline caught my eye: "An ancient Chalcolithic settlement site in Lemba in Paphos urgently requires maintenance, according to the local community leader". We had visited this site before, so I thought I should revisit it to see just how urgent the maintenance was...
From the small carpark, everything looked pretty much as I remembered from my previous visit in 2015.
At The Gate
However, a sign at the gate revealed that the restoration work is already underway. Well, they have put a sign up and locked the gate. I couldn't see any signs of activity though.
The Original Village
As I couldn't get in, I took some pictures from the fence. The low walls are the site of the original village. The buildings in the distance and what you will see in the other pictures, are reconstructions.
Towards The Buildings
It was a lot less green the last time we were here. These two buildings looked in the same state though.
The Main Buildings
This is the main body of buildings, and you can quite clearly see that a roof has collapsed and there is a large hole in the wall.
