Latsia (Greek: Λατσιά [locally [laˈt͡ʃʰa]]; Turkish: Laçça), once a small village on the south east outskirts of Nicosia, Cyprus, is today one of the largest and most populous suburbs of the city. It hosts the new Nicosia General Hospital, the new GSP Stadium, the new campus of the University of Cyprus and the Mall of Cyprus. Latsia has seen a great increase of population right after the Turkish invasion of the island and it became the home of a lot of refuges since refuge housing was developed there.
