* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special advantages of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the unique Experiences it offers. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, nor do they serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

The Water Tower was built in 1920 and supplied water to Limassol for almost 30 years. Its location was once the highest point of the entire city, since the few houses of Limassol started from the beach and reached where the tower is today.

The reservoir was created to replace Havuza, which supplied the city with water until the tower was built. It is a distinct point of Limassol, as well as a reference point for visitors.

The height and capacity of the Water Tower was sufficient to supply water to the entire city up until 1947, when the underground water supply system was created.

The pump, which was installed at the lowest point of Limassol, fed the tank through pipes that drew water from the place where there were burrows. The water transport system was innovative, not only for Cyprus, but also for the entire surrounding area.
