The Rehabilitation of Urban Landscape in Lefkara is one of the four Pilot Operations of RehabiMed, a Euromed Heritage III Project,
dealing with the Traditional Architecture of the Mediterrenean, its rehabilitation and its promotion as a factor of sustainable development.

The project, completed on January 2007, includes rehabilitation of facades, stone pavements, improvement of the electrical installation
and illumination, urban furniture and signage. The rehabilitation project was based on a previous historical research and on the documentation
of the traditional architectural elements in situ, according to the RehabiMed Method for the rehabilitation of the traditional architecture.
