It is a beautiful village, and in recent years has been allocated municipality status. Sotira is famous for its plant called 'Kolokasi' (know in English as Jerusalem artichokes or taro). Since 2009 there is a an annual festival dedicated to the plant, usually in October. The coastal area of Ayia Thekla is part of Sotira Municipality and only 5km from the centre of the village. Paralimni is also only a five minute drive and Larnaca International Airport just half an hour down the highway. The village offers all amenities including shops, banks, schools and tavernas. Properties in Sotira are much in demand and are usually snapped up quickly due to the prime location.ABOUT THE FAMAGUSTA REGIONWhether you are planning to visit the Famagusta region of the Republic of Cyprus for the first time or you are already in love with the area, there is something here for everyone.The area is not known as the ‘Jewel of the Eastern Mediterranean' for nothing!
