Sotira has taken its name from a church, situated in the centre of the village which is dedicated to the transfiguration of Jesus Christ the Saviour (Sotira in Greek means Saviour). It is a beautiful village, and in recent years has been allocated municipality status.

Sotira is famous for its plant called ‘Kolokasi’ (known in English as Jerusalem artichokes or taro). Since 2009 there is a an annual festival dedicated to the plant, usually in October. The coastal area of Ayia Thekla is part of Sotira Municipality and only 5km from the centre of the village. Paralimni is also only a five minute drive and Larnaca International Airport just half an hour down the highway. The village offers all amenities including shops, banks, schools and tavernas.
