The oldest site on Cyprus is Choirokoitia, a stone age village. Choirokoitia (or Khirokitia) is an archaeological site dating from the Neolithic age. The site is known as one of the most important and best preserved prehistoric sites of the eastern Mediterranean. It was occupied from the 7th until the 4th millennium BCE. Choirokoitia holds the remnant of one of the many Ancient Civilizations that I saw during my travels.

The Neolithic Settlement of Choirokoitia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
