St George Havouza water reservoirs is the first known water supply work in Limassol. It was built by the British Colonial Authorities and it has been pronounced “ancient monument” in 1996.

Havouza consists of two water reservoirs and it was located at a very tall area of the city. Water gathered in both reservoirs and then was supplied to the city via stone pipes which ended up at the public outdoor stone & marble sinks and fountains.

From there, young ladies and children used to carry their jugs filled with water, back at their houses for domestic use even thought, back then, there were people who sold water to the city. 

Water reservoirs were no longer needed after the Water Tower and Watermachine begun functioning.
