Our first stop will be the Sourp Magar Armenian Monastery. Sourp Magar is a monastery located in a forested valley in the Besparmak Mountain range. While it was long a centre of Armenian culture, Sourp Magar is also noted for its picturesque location and distant view of the Mediterranean and the mountains in Anatolia that the scenery provides. The monastery is situated at a height of 510 m above sea level on the northern slopes of the Besparmak mountains. We’ll soak up the atmosphere in this monastery and have a picnic in the grounds while we marvel at the views. The next point in our program is the Buffavento Castle, which is at 955 m above sea level, Buffavento castle stands as the highest of the three crusader castles. It probably originated as a Byzantine watch tower to guard the island against Arab raiders in the 10th century. Although it takes a climb to reach to the castle, only the panoramic views that covers both the north shore and Kyrenia and the Nicosia and the Troodos Mountains in a good day alone worth the efforts. You will also discover why the castle, is name Buffavento, meaning “Defier of winds”. And while you’re standing at the top and enjoying the spectacular scenery, you might wonder how such a monument got built up there in the first place. After watching the magnificent sun set in the foothills of Kyrenia mountains, we’ll drive back to the hotel.
