Today, we start driving to ' St. Hilarion Castle'.
It was built at 732 metres above the sea level as a watchtower and later on, it was converted into a castle during the Lusignan Period. 'Kyrenia Castle' is one of the castles that everyone should visit. It was built during the Byzantine Period and many additions were made by many civilisations. The most amazing part of the Castle is the 'Shipwreck Museum' which you can see the amphoras, olive seeds, fig seeds, almonds which date back to 300BC. We drink our beer facing the magnificent view of the Kyrenia marina which was mainly constructed during the Venetian period while you get to listen to the history of Cyprus from your guide.
The last stop will be the 'Kantara Castle' to go there we drive from the beautiful coastline of Kyrenia. When you are at the top you get to see the beautiful view of Kyrenia and Famagusta from the slopes of the Five Finger Mountains.
It will be a memorable day for you if you are interested in castles, history and nature.
