Saint Hilarion Castle
When you arrive there is a small car park and also a cafe at the entrance to the Castle grounds. A nice spot to prepare for your long but interesting trek to the top!
You'll visit St. Hillarion Castle reminiscent of Walt Disney's fairytale film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which was inspired by this castle. Spend around 1.5-hours to climb all the way to the top.
“There is a small museum inside with a shipwreck that is 2300 years old, together with a viewpoint overlooking the harbour.”
Point of Interest
“An absolute must visit location - and anyway the Tourist Information Office is located here, so you'll want to pop in there anyway! If you want something to eat or drink there are plenty of spots here, but I'd suggest taking a look off some of the side alleys that lead off from the harbor, there are some delightful little cafes hidden away there.”
Place of Worship
“This fabulous Monastery in Bellapais is definitely worth a visit if visiting the area of Kyrenia and the entrance fee was minimal. In a lovely village with stunning views of Kyrenia below.”
“One of the best Night clubs in europe, if you are into the Club Scene and are into House music this is generally where to go to dance the night away under the stars. Opposite there is another Club called Coco Bongo set in the sea.”
“Buffavento is the highest and smallest of the three Crusader castles positioned along the spine of the Kyrenia mountain range. It’s fantastic to look down from above and to enjoy the spectacular views onwards over the Mesaoria plain. It is worth making the climb for the stunning views over the island in all directions.”
