Walking Tour

Overview

Visit exquisite Bellapais Abbey and ascend to Boufavento Castle for breathtaking views. We ascend the 1,000 years old, Byzantine Castle of Boufavento, on the second highest (elevation nearly 900 m) peak of rugged Pentadactylos Mountain range and enjoy amazing views.

We explore the beautiful 13th century Gothic Bellapais Abbey. Usually, we visit pretty Kyrenia port (and optionally Kyrenia Castle).

This excursion includes two of the best attractions in Cyprus and combines the exploration of gothic 13th century Bellapais Abbey with the breathtaking views from the 1,000 years old, Byzantine Castle of Boufavento, on the second highest (at an elevation of nearly 900 m) peak of rugged Pentadactylos Mountain range. 'Bufavento' comes from Italian, meaning 'the one who defies the wind'.

Usually the trip includes also a visit to pretty Kyrenia port (and optionally to Kyrenia Castle).

Travelers should keep in mind that visiting Boufavento Castle requires a steep one-km long, 100+ meters elevation difference, walk up and down from the parking place to the castle itself. Most of the walk is on a paved trail (much of it includes stairs).

Itinerary

From Nicosia we head uphill and northeast to imposing Boufavento Castle at the second highest peak of Pentadactylos/Kyrenia Mountains. After our visit to the castle we travel to Bellapais village and explore Gothic Bellapais Abbey.

Subject to time availability and depending on travelers' preference we have a stop at Kyrenia old port and/or visit Kyrenia Castle, before returning to Nicosia.
