Multi-purpose hall Charalambos Koukoularides
Located in Galata village, this hall is the pride and joy of the community and generally the Solea region. It is a sports facility built to European standards and is perfectly equipped for most sporting activities. Specifically, the hall is suitable for indoor football (futsal), basketball, volleyball and handball.
This sports centre was envisioned by the former General Manager of the Cyprus Sports Organization, the late Charalambos Koukoularides, who was a participant in the struggles of the Cypriot people for freedom, national independence and democracy. He was a close associate of the late Archbishop Makarios (Cyprus’s first President).
The Galata community is a result of outstanding cultural heritage. Built at an altitude of 620m above sea level, on the banks of the Karkotis River. The village is surrounded by lush greenery consisting of fruit trees and wild plants. Impressive wooden balconies and stairs adorn traditional-style houses and six Byzantine churches, with pyramid roofs and rectangular tiles, stand proudly in the village.
