ST HILARION & BELLAPAIS
Today we succumb to the romance of two storybook highlights. First, we visit St Hilarion castle that many say is the inspiration for two fairy-tale castles – Bavarian King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle and Snow White’s castle in Disneyland. Included with the tour is entrance to the castle, which is best enjoyed if you’re fairly mobile, but the breath-taking views can still be enjoyed from the easily accessible viewpoint at the entrance or from the castle’s café.
Then we visit the beautiful village of Bellapais. It is a sheer pleasure wandering through the tangle of narrow lanes past flower-bedecked buildings up the hill, where you’ll find outstanding views of Kyrenia harbour and the cerulean sea. A gem of the village is its medieval ‘Abbey of Peace’, the ruins of a monastery that once offered shelter to Augustinian monks who were expelled when Jerusalem fell to Saladin. The site also houses a museum, and the abbey’s Gothic refectory serves as a unique venue for concerts and lectures.
The tour finishes mid afternoon.
