Museum of Traditional Embroidery and Silversmith-w

The village of Lefkara is situated on the southeastern flank of the Troodos Mountain, in the district of Larnaka. The Museum is kept in the House of Patsalos, which was named after its owner who belonged to one of the village's richest families. Since 1979 many houses in Lefkara have been declared “ancient monuments” and some of them have been restored by the Department of Antiquities.

The House of Patsalos was acquired by the Department of Antiquities in 1983, thanks to a donation by Mr. Stelios Ioannou and after its restoration it was officially opened to the public as a Museum in August 1988.
