The Choirokitia Archaeological Site is an extremely well preserved Neolithic settlement, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998. Remnants of all phases of the Neolithic Age are visible in the settlement and present a picture of living conditions in the area during the Prehistoric Times, as well as how Neolithic Culture spread throughout the area. Five houses with characteristic cylindrical shape have been rebuilt near the settlement, using the same construction methods and materials used in the Neolithic times. The houses are equipped with copies of the household items found in the original dwellings, thus providing a vivid representation of how the homes actually were in the past. The vegetation around the houses consists of native plants and trees growing in Cyprus from the Neolithic Age.
