Architecture

Kato Drys Kato Drys is one of the most important traditional village of Larnaka. It’s a community whose historical proofs are much older than the Frankish rule, and it has the undisputable advantage of historical evolution, which is long and simultaneously rich in images and experiences.
The houses of this traditional architecture are not ghosts from a previous Age but live proofs of the potential to keep the village character alive. A significant example is the old Gabriel’s  house that has been renewed. This house is architecturally very interesting. To repair the house, traditional materials were used. It is now a monument of older times. The traditional home as an expression of genuine creation, filled with centuries’ tradition, is worth being conserved and studied.

 

Local Agricultural Museum of Kato Drys

(House of Gabriel and Eleni Papachristoforou)

The house is a typical specimen of local architecture from the 19th century. It is stone-made with five ground-floor rooms and an upper-level room, an indoor, enclosed yard with an oven, and a roofed passage with an arch that leads to the large gateway, which opens toward the road. Although simple, it was quite a luxuriant house for its time, belonging to a wealthy family that owned land and received a decent income through its crops. When it was converted into a museum, the Antiquities Department made sure that the items and the configuration gave to the visitor an image of a traditional rural household.
