Alassa

Alassa is a village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, located north of the Kouris Dam, on the main road from Limassol to Kakopetria.

The excavations of Cypriot archaeologists in the early 1980s unearthed the ruins of the Bronze Age city of Alassa. Among other things, the remains of a palace were discovered, and indication of a greater importance than today as a local trading center.[2] It is debatable whether Alassa was the capital of a kingdom of ancient Cyprus, Alašija. The archaeologist Claude Schaeffer has made claims about this.

Nowadays Alassa was developed into a park-like tourist center.
