Things to do Attractions Fassoula Agricultural Museum

Fassoula Agricultural Museum

The Fassoula Agricultural Museum is housed in a traditional residence in the village of Fassoula, and contains agricultural tools, such as a plough, yoke, scythe and earthenware jars that were used for daily chores or for storing wine or olive oil in bygone times.

The village itself dates back to the Middle Ages and is depicted on old maps of Cyprus with the name ‘Fasula’ or ‘Phasula’. The most likely origin of its name is from the Frankish word ‘fasoula’, meaning scythe – the tool for harvesting.
