Very few places concentrate aspects so different from each other: the beaches, among the cleanest and hottest in Europe, with its turquoise blue waters; the inland mountains, where tourists and locals practice winter sports in the cold season (ski, snowboard, etc.); the magnificent archaeological ruins of Kourion, in Salamis; the tombs of the Kings of Pafos, on the one hand, and on the other, the lush cities of Lefkosia, Lemesos and Larnaka, where the aspirations of modernity prevail.
A small Byzantine church or a mosque, an arid landscape and a forest of cedars, olive groves and vineyards, an abandoned village and another adorned with stone houses, that’s how beautiful Cyprus is. Cyprus, the island of Aphrodite, the third of the Mediterranean biggest in area and an ideal tourist destination to spend your holidays or as a weekend getaway.
Its exquisite multicultural gastronomy and its precious traditional crafts are the cultural heritage of more than five millennia of history that evoke the ancient Mycenaean civilizations, Phoenicia and Persian, followed the Venetians, Ottomans and the British.
