Lefkara named one of world’s top tourism villages

Lefkara has been recognised as one of the ‘Best Tourism Villages’ by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO). 

The initiative was launched to advance the role of tourism in safeguarding rural villages, along with their landscapes, natural and cultural diversity, and their local values and activities, including local gastronomy. 

A total of 44 villages from 32 countries across the five world regions were granted recognition in 2021. 

All of them stand out for their natural and cultural resources as well as for their innovative and transformative actions and commitment to the development of tourism in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
