The Great Monastery of Cyprus – Kykkos

This is the richest monastery on the Mediterranean coast. It is even exempt from state taxes. The monastery was founded in the XII century, many times burned and re-emerged.

Village Lefkara

Visit the unique and famous village of the Republic of Cyprus – Lefkara. It is located 40 kilometers from Larnaca. The village is famous for the whole world for its embroidery. You can buy embroidery in almost every home, but it is not cheap. You can spend a certain amount of money to buy such beautiful rare things because you will not find them anywhere else.

The history of the village dates back to the Middle Ages. The famous Leonardo da Vinci himself visited it and bought altar lace for the monastery from local craftswomen. The village is very picturesque: beautiful white houses with red tiles on the roofs, green pines and flowers against a bright blue sky.

Bay Petra tou Romiou. Aphrodite’s Birthplace

Bay Petra tou Romiou is romantic and very beautiful place near Paphos. It is a gigantic legendary stone near the beach. Here, according to legend, the Greek goddess of love and beauty Aphrodite emerged from the foam of the sea. At the base of the cliff above the water there is a grotto where Aphrodite took baths before meeting with her beloved Adonis. But now you can not swim here because near the stone there are powerful surf and big waves.
