The city of Limassol held an important harbour for pilgrims and travellers of various nationalities who came to Limassol from all different walks of life. The aim of this paper is to bring forward the different German narratives within Limassol by following the streams of pilgrims and travellers that passed through over the decades. It will also investigate the decrease in the number of pilgrims around the 14th century and the rise of travellers who specifically came to Limassol during the 18th century, concluding that there was no actual decrease but a lack of documentation due to the constant passing of Cyprus from one power to the next.
