Artemis Cynthia Complex – Paphos Cyprus

Lempa Prehistoric Settlement

Lempa is an important village found in the suburbs of the town of Paphos. It is renowned as one of Cyprus’ prime Chalcolithic villages and a site where its preserved rounds house and replicas offer a good understanding on how people used to live in that era.

Lempa’s prehistoric settlement is estimated to date back to the Chalcolithic Age from 3900-2500 BC.

Replicas of five houses have been reconstructed on the site using materials and building methods similar to those used during the era. Several cruciform female figurines from this period, carved in stone, have also been discovered at the site.

Lempa is also home to one of Paphos’ most well-known art school which also offers a great stop for art enthusiasts.
