If you want to tick the biggest dam in Cyprus off your list, then the Kouris dam is a must-see. With a capacity of 115 million cubic metres of water, it’s situated 15 kilometres north west of Limassol in a steep valley and collects water from three rivers: Kouris, Limnatis and Kryos. And what’s interesting, is that in order to be constructed, the whole nearby village of Alassa had to be relocated to a nearby site overlooking the reservoir.
