Cyprus is unique!
Where else can you enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year – or marvel at a greater array of scenic beauties or more highly varied flora and fauna or a cultural heritage that goes back a staggering 9,000 years?
In Cyprus you can stroll through the remains of the Late Stone Age settlement at Khirokitia and walk along the rocky coast where Aphrodite, ‘born from the foam’, the island’s own goddess, who rose from the depths of the sea and who, you will there discover, was ‘related’ to the Virgin Mary, Mother of the God! Early Christian-Byzantine churches with their superb mosaics and fescoes, many of them today UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, are here described fully as richly as they deserve, with scholarly and detailed explanations of their iconographic programmes. At the same time, present-day Cyprus is by no means neglected: what people do here, how they live from day to day, their customs and traditions, their cuisine and arts and crafts.
