Picturesque villages and the west coast


Description:

We started the route at the Energetic Islands Resort and set out on the west coast through villages near the famous Axmas area. The village of Catex is known for its special grape variety, the village of St. George - a place of tranquility and the west coast - a picturesque road to the airport.

Local restaurants in the village of Katikas are considered throughout the region. The village is ancient and famous for its traditional way of life. Here in the courtyard of the restaurant we parked and headed for a short sabbas in the picturesque village. Parking is free and not only for restaurant guests :) Translated with Google Translate

This restaurant yard is recommended by various guides. We did not taste - we arrived in the morning and this is not the peak time of activity and energy :) Translated with Google Translate

Ι.Ν. Παναίίαὐ Εὐαγεελιστρία B Biserica Panagia Evangelistria
Ι.Ν. Παναίίαὐ Εὐαγεελιστρία B Biserica Panagia Evangelistria

This is the Church of the Marian Gospel. It was renovated in the early 19th century and is now the central church of the village. On the western side next to the entrance is the icon of the Annunciation in which Angel Gabriel informs St. Mary that she was chosen to bear the Word of God in flesh and blood. The event took place in Nazareth and thus Christian Joshua was born. Translated with Google Translate

The local museum and monument
Uploaded by Kirill Kamanin

The rural museum and a monument to key figures in Cyprus during the rule of the Turkish army on the eve of the Turkish invasion in 1974. After the British left the island and the declaration of independence Cyprus in 1960, the Greek island population Christian and Turkish Muslims received representation in the institutions of the Republic of the young but the subject was not clear over the country and imposed by the Greek military extremists until the invasion of Turkey in 1974 and the division of the island to the Greek center And the Turkish north. In the village there was an exchange of population and the Turkish residents moved to the north. Translated with Google Translate

Life seemed to have stopped in this village and tradition was felt everywhere. The half-open doors invited to look and listen, and of course a radio point was the media tax of the village to this day Translated with Google Translate

A beautiful view of the sea, while looking at a green field of spring blooming. The area is filled with private fields cultivated by local villagers. To find a rather rare wheat field, the area is mostly vineyards, but differences in altitude from about 600 meters in the observation area to about 300 meters in the field area explain the difference in crops.

Lookout towards the wadi to the east - you can see the limestone bedrock mixed with basalt rock. Cyprus is an island that meets two tectonic plates - the European and the Asian, and this caused the rise and creation of the island. In the center, the mountain range rises almost 2000 meters above sea level. This crust also forms an ancient bottom of the ancient ocean of Tatis. Translated with Google Translate

Parking Lot

Beautiful picturesque parking above the beautiful bay of Drifano. It is one of the oldest ports in Cyprus. Here there is a harbor back in ancient times, when ships laden with wheat from Egypt stopped on their way to ancient Greece. The landscape here is fascinating and invites to photograph countless pictures. Below are a number of trails that allow you to reach a complex cave system located just below the parking lot. These caves are actually burial caves, similar to burial caves in Israel. Translated with Google Translate

Agios Yeorgios, Pegeia
Uploaded by Kirill Kamanin

St. George's Church is a relatively young church. It was built in a distinctly Orthodox style in 1928. The figure of St. George is very common in Cyprus (his burial place is in the country of Lod) and he is one of the two saints in Cyprus after St. Mary. It is customary in the local tradition to ask for prayer in the church for the invention of a couple - a kind of delivery of the extra side of the worshiper - the consummation of the soul. When I was shooting, I saw two elderly people enter the church and light a candle. There is an ancient historic church on the road. In the adjacent area, impressive excavations were conducted in which an ancient city that stood above the ancient harbor was discovered. The city flourished during the days of ancient Rome and ceased to exist with the Muslim conquest in the 7th century. Translated with Google Translate

Agios Georgios Pegeia
Agios Georgios Pegeia

Restaurant with a mesmerizing view. Quiet. Calm. Everything comes to mind in front of a quiet sea view, sunlight and blue skies. We taste baklava - she is giants compared to what is known in Israel, she swims in honey and she tastes delicious! Simple and tasteless restaurant meals - everything that was fished at a fishing port below - you can just put on the fire and enjoy! Translated with Google Translate

A handmade ceramic store
A handmade ceramic store

Ceramic shop. Everything is handmade (at least according to the owner) and probably is right! Cups of different sizes coated with glazes, traditional whistles that fill with water and create bird sound, bowls and more. Beautiful and original things. Translated with Google Translate

Philippos Supermarket
Uploaded by Kirill Kamanin

A writer on the road. Before flying there is always an urge to buy something local to bring home. While we are convinced that we are all one big village, you can get to know original things that are really connected to the place. For example, pita bread is different from what we know in Israel, but in the same taste. Seafood and fish are a huge and versatile selection. Everything is fresh and inviting! Local cheeses with a wide selection and an interesting invention of olives in bags. Tzitziki is also a good addition to the shopping basket you take to Israel! Translated with Google Translate

Entrance to Adonis Falls Access Road
Uploaded by Kirill Kamanin

Adonis Factories. A place to visit. The driveway looks garbled, but everywhere written is appropriate for any vehicle. We did not dare to get on this road in the car (sorry for the car we had), but to our astonishment we saw a similar vehicle coming out of the road and climbing on an asphalt road. They were tourists from London and said they could pass without problems. The trip to the falls is about 3 kilometers and the place is worth every effort. But ... were before a flight and did not take a risk. We continued to the field without reaching the Adonis factories. Translated with Google Translate

S & F car hire (Paphos Airport)

His car was small, with a manual transmission. I recently did not drive with a manual box what else the steering wheel is and the gears have to be moved by hand. But I got used quickly and the cost of renting for 4 days of $ 70 is atonement for every minute of getting used to the challenge! Translated with Google Translate
