* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

North of the city of Limassol, near the village of Fasoula, one will find the sculpture museum of self-taught sculptor, Filippos Yiapanis. The Famagusta refugee created his own art refuge just outside of Limassol, as a symbol of his return to his home.

It is built across a large expanse of land south of the village, and includes the amphitheater 'Little Salamis,' the Gymnasium, a miniature of the Gymnasium of Ancient Salamis in Famagusta, and the contemporary museum, which was named 'Art Nest.' The area is surrounded by carved stones, which are reminiscent of the walls of Kyrenia and Famagusta, while the space itself is interspersed with impressive sculptures. 

The modern museum functions as a cultural and exhibition venue. A mezzanine level hosts a cafeteria, bar, and exhibition space, and also allows for panoramic views of the sculptures on the ground floor.

'Art Nest' is the most recent addition to the space, and it is a building that embodies the role of the museum as a center for peace and friendship among nations. The artist's goal is the cooperation of his colleagues, primarly young people from neighboring countries, in order to inspire dialogue and collaboration, develop relationships, and eradicate fanaticism.

The outdoor space is frequently used for charitable concerts as well as other events.
