The ‘Environmental Information Centre of Larnaka Mountainous Areas’ - located in the Larnaka village of Skarinou – was set up to educate and inform guests about the significance of Larnaka’s rural areas.

The centre was funded by the European Union’s ‘Rural Development Programme 2007-2013’ and is an interactive experience with exhibits, a library, arts and crafts and even a lab where visitors can look through microscopes; something that children are certain to enjoy whilst learning!

The environmentally significant area itself is naturally abundant and provides a beautiful backdrop for nature walks, bird watching and cycling, which you can combine with a visit to the centre for a complete day out.

The centre’s manager, Mrs Anna Cosma, says that the centre’s mission is two-fold; to preserve and protect the environment through information and education, and to develop environmental awareness by promoting the three ‘r’s – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Visitors can actually learn how to reuse everyday objects at the centre, such as turning cans into candle holders, bottles into vases and the like.
