Paragraphs
Choirokoitia is a village in the Larnaka province, located 2 km north of Tochni, near the World Heritage Site of Choirokoitia. Choirokoitia is 33 km away from the city.

Arriving in the village, you will find a cafe and the Neolithic Settlement of Choirokoitia. Going forward and reaching the centre of the village, the visitor has the opportunity to walk through the narrow stone-built alleys of the village and enjoy the fresh air and the beauty of the place.

The archaeological site of Choirokoitia is a remarkably well-preserved settlement from the Neolithic Age that has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.

Remains from all phases of the Neolithic Age are evident in the settlement, and provide an insight of living conditions in the region during prehistoric times, as well as how the Neolithic culture was spread throughout the region.

Five characteristic cylindrical shaped dwellings have been reconstructed near the settlement, using the same construction methods and materials used in Neolithic times. The dwellings are fitted with replicas of household objects found inside the original dwellings, thus providing a vivid representation of how they actually were in the past. The vegetation around the dwellings consists of native plants and trees that have grown in Cyprus since Neolithic times.
