Lasa is a graphical, agriculture community in the district of Paphos. Its name comes from the high altitude which it is located in. It is located at an altitude of 600 metres above the sea level. The climate is a few degrees cooler than that of the lower mountain communities. The closest villages are Fyti, which is about 2 kilometres east and Milia, which is about 4 kilometres south. Drimou and Simou are also close communities to the village.

With time, the number of residents began to decrease as the slowly abandoned it. The number of the elderly decreased, while the youth moved to larger cities in order to enjoy more comforts and a higher living level. Even though the village is small there are about one hundred locals who still live in the village. The village began to be erased from the Cypriot map. Even though, the residents worked with the community counsellors in order to make an attempt of reconstructing the village image. New projects are made, new propositions are being implemented for the whole village. This attempt is continued by other members as well. The fight for the rebirth of the village is collective. Also the cultural club is founded which is made up of expatriates of Lasa. Its aim is to cultivate civilisation and preserve the tradition of their land.
