Kritou Terra is the village where the first Casino of Cyprus operated from 1878 until the beginning of the 20th century. The Casino was housed in a building that had been constructed between the years 1860 and 1870, the maintenance of which has now been undertaken by the Department of Antiquities. One is worth observing the frescos on the internal walls of the casino, such as the one which depicts the Greek Revolution hero, Athanasios Diakos, as well as a second one which depicts the well-known popular hero, Koutalianos, all inspired by history and tradition. More: Sights
