Overview

Breathtaking views from Pentadactylos mountains ridge and exploration of precious medieval Walled Famagusta. Walk around Walled Famagusta, a possible future UNESCO World Heritage site, with more than ten existing medieval churches, and visit Kantara Castle, one of three Byzantine castles on rugged Pentadactylos Mountains. Enjoy wonderful views around the east part of Pentadactylos Mountains.

The trip combines two of Cyprus prime attractions:

  1. Walled Famagusta, a possible future UNESCO World Heritage site, which had its golden century during the middle ages, and at the time was a very cosmopolitan trading post and one of the richest cities on earth, and
  2. Kantara Castle, one of three Byzantine castles on rugged Pentadactylos Mountains. Kantara was one of the battlefields during Richard the Lionheart's conquest of Cyprus and a place that offers wonderful views around the east part of Pentadactylos Mountains.
