We start driving to Kantara Castle which is on the northeast of the island.
The Castle was built on Five Finger Mountains to protect the island from Arab attacks on the 7th century. The castle is 632 meters above the sea level and one of the nicest of 3 castles. After exploring the castle we drive to Bogazi, to a small fishing village where we stop for a cup of Cypriot coffee.
We drive to the walled city of Famagusta and you realize that you are entering the history of Medieval Period. We shall walk and see some of the historical sights in the city. Have our lunch(extra) opposite the Cathedral which was built in 1298 by the Lusignans. The Palace is just opposite the Cathedral, we keep walking to see the remains from Byzantine, Lusignans, Venetians and Ottomans. We stretch our legs while we have lunch (extra) in the old city. We have a panoramic view of 'Ghost Town'. Why is it called Ghost town? Are there any ghost stories? Well to learn about all you have to take this tour and just listen to your guide.
