The French Carmalite Nicole Le Huen visited Limassol:
Saturday, the feast of the Nativity of our Lady, it was calm, and we stayed at Lymesson to get victuals, biscuit, sheep and some wine. One gets there thirty sheep for a ducat. Sunday, September 9, we landed to hear mass, and stayed till after dinner...Monday, we left Lymesson...Thursday. In four days we had sailed but thirty miles. We anchored as near as we could to Baffa, and some went on shore to get victuals.
