From Pedoulas, it was an easy but gorgeous drive through the mountains to reach Kykkos Monastery (Ιερά Μονή Κύκκου). Really, I was somewhat (somewhat? very!) afraid to drive in Cyprus, because they drive on the left side of the road. But Cyprus's roads are so calm, and pretty, and easy... Such a pleasure! As usual, please forgive the quality of my photos – I use such an ordinary camera!
Finally, we reached it, Kykkos. A thousand year old place (not the structure, though, which has been rebuilt numerous times).
There's something about Greek Orthodox monasteries and churches... Well, I guess it's precisely that sense of orthodoxy... of antiquity? of really belonging to a distant past? A pleasure to be seeing this, in Cyprus.
Also, a funny thing happened on our way back to Pedoulas. The town is so small, and it's located at such a junction in the mountains, that we reached this sign that read that Pedoulas was to the right a certain distance, and also to the left a slightly longer distance! Whaaat??? We're staying not just at a quaint place, but a magical one?
