Identified as the first known settlement in Cyprus this is a very special place. The very age of the settlement carries a sense of awe. The original villages are located on the top of a significant hill. To visit you have a choice of walks,...More

An interesting UNESCO world heritage site which can be visited on its own or plays part of a heritage trail. Although the actual site is reached trough a steep and rugged terrain, the reconstructed huts are informative and interesting
