Travel Tips for Kyrenia

A half day trip to Saint Hilarion castle

by call_me_rhia

A side trip to Saint Hilarion castle is very much recommended, the road getting there is very scenic and the castle itself is fairy-tale like. It dates back to the 11th century and it's located on a mountain - with parts of it emerging from the mountain and using the rocky cliffs as part of the construction. At times mountain and castle blend magically. The castle is divided in three different parts, lower, middle and upper part - and it is believed to have had more than 100 rooms and apartments.

When you walk through the gate and inside the caste walls, the first place you'll encounter is the lower part, which is also the largest part, where where soldiers and animals used to live... buildings were basic and simple, there... stables, basically. There are several custodian towers, there.

The middle part is further up the mountain, after a house with a vaulted passage (the Gate House); there is also a church there, the church annexes, a water cistern, a kitchen and its cellars, a large 14th century hall (possibly the refectory) and some 13th century Royal Apartments.

The upper part, quite a long way above the middle part, is where the real Royal Apartments would have been - views from there are breathtaking. The royal apartments up there, which date back to the 14th century, used to have their own water cistern and kitchen. There was also a large courtyard flanked by the twin crests of mountain upon which it is built.

Watch the Fishermen

by easyoar

If you stroll all the way round the harbour in Kyrenia so that you have left the castle at the far end of the harbour, and then you set off along the seafront. It is not uncommon to see fishermen trying their luck in the sea.

They can be quite friendly and seem to be fishing as much for the banter as for the fish.

There is also a good view up the seafront from here.

The Dome Hotel

by easyoar

This hotel has quite a lot of history associated with it. Lawrence Durrell (who was a brother of the better known Gerald) the author (of the book Bitter Lemons written about the problems between the English, Greeks and Turks in Cyprus) and schoolteacher had links to this hotel.

It is common to see it in hotel brochures, and the prices are acknowledged to be pretty high for what you get. My advice is if you want to see it, just pop in and get a drink and wander about inside for a few minutes.

Kyrenia, Cyprus

by Ben-UK

Just went to Kyrenia for the day to visit some friends who lived there.

We were staying in Paphos, so hired a car and drove to Nicosia and crossed the border there.

The Turkish side of Cyprus looked quieter than the Greek side, but that was in 1991 - would like to go back again now to see if things have changed much since then.
