A  trip  that  will give  you  the  chance  to  discover  the  unspoiled  beauty  of  the  northern  part  of  Cyprus  and  to  get  an  exciting  taste  of  the  turbulent  history  of  the  island!

 

Travelling  towards  Famagusta  town  center, we  drive  right  next  to  the  ‘Ghost  Town’ (the  fenced  sealed-off  area  of  the  town)  which  remains  trapped  in  a  time-lock  the  Turkish  invasion  in  Cyprus, in  1974.

 

We  then  arrive  at  Famagusta  Old  Town  Center  where  free  time  will  be  given  to  enjoy  the  surroundings  of  this  beautiful  coastal  town, famous  for  its  golden  sandy  beaches, its  Old  Venetian  Walls  and  Gothic  Church  of  Saint  Nicholas.

 

 

Driving  through  Pentadaktilos  Mountain  Range, we  arrive  at  Bellapais  Abbey  which  is  a  masterpiece  of  Gothic  Art! Its  construction  was  completed  in  the  13th  century  AD by  the  White  Canons, a  Roman  Catholic  religious  order  founded  by  Saint  Norbert.
