What to see

One of the most beautiful monuments of Gothic architecture in Cyprus, built by the Crusaders in the early 13th century near Kyrenia and mostly turned into ruins by our time.

The name of the abbey, as well as the name of the nearby village of Bellapais, comes from the French name of the monastery Abbaye de la Paix — Abbey of Peace.

Bellapais Abbey

A castle in Cyprus on the slopes of the Kyrenia Mountains.

Originally a monastery named after a monk who chose this place for his hermitage.

Later, the monastery was significantly fortified by the Byzantines and, together with the castles of Buffavento and Kantara, formed the defense of the island against raids by Arab pirates on the coast.

St. Hilarion Castle

"Protected by an impregnable castle, with a beautiful view of the mountains of the Kyrenia range, Kyrenia harbor has a horseshoe shape.
