The Folk Art Museum
The visitors of Lefkara must not fail to see the Patsalos house. It houses the Museum of Popular Art and hosts exquisite embroidery samples, some of which date back to the 19th century.
The Museum became a reality thanks to the donation of Stelios Ioannou, a local businessman, and the care of the Department of Antiquities. It was inaugurated in August 1988 by the then speaker of the House and originating from Lefkara, Dr. Vassos Lyssarides.
This house itself is a typical sample of the popular architecture of the 19th century, with all tratitional elements such as ports in the front doors, huge Interior solar oven, hull, inner courtyard with flowers, and many more.
This house has a big comfortable room that served as a bedroom, dining room or even as a storeroom for the wrist.
A very impressive element in the construction of local houses in Lefkara village is the arch – this is also indicated in the Museum.
