Ruins of Soli

Soli is an ancient settlement located in the western part of north Cyprus, just outside the village of Gemikonagi, on the coast near Lefke. Its history can be dated back to the 11th century BC.

The city we can see today, was built around the 6th century BC, and is thought to have been named after the Greek philosopher, Solon. Soli was one of the most important capitals of Cyprus because of its port facilities and fertile soil.
