SAINT HILARION CASTLE, CYPRUS
I have made visits to 'the other side' ever since the borders opened a number of years back now.
Slowly slowly, piece by piece I have begun to uncover and discover my homeland. The experience is emotional and rewarding as I begin to understand the rich history and to see and experience the wealth of landmarks, important sites and sheer beauty that exists in Cyprus, beyond borders..
I very much hope these boundaries will eventually become non-existent and replaced with unification.
This visit last year was to Saint Hilarion Castle, a Byzantine castle that underwent extensive alterations by the French in the middle ages. It was a breath-taking tour.
