Limnitis (Greek: Λιμνίτης, Turkish: Yeşilırmak) is a village in the Tillyria region in Nicosia District, North Western Cyprus. The ancient Vouni Palace was located nearby. It is a small village located on the shores of the Morphou Bay. The upper parts of the village are located 20 metres above sea level but settlement extends all the way down to the sea.
The village is located on the North Western slopes of the Troodos Mountains. The region shows clear signs of early settlement; the ruins of Vouni Palace are located nearby, and the ruins of the city of Soli are located a little further to the East.
Modern settlement in the area began in the early 19th century. Two families settled here; the Osman family settled in Xerovounos (Turkish: Kurutepe) and the Süleyman family settled in Selemani (Turkish: Süleymaniye).
The people are farmers. Growing fruit and vegetables and selling them at markets provide their main source of income. The village is known for its strawberries.
