Viran Kilisi (Cyprus)
≈ 1:15 Std.
At the mountain pass between Girne and Kythrea is the Buffavento Café. Here (with Girne in your back) you leave the main road to the left. Follow the small road 5.5 kms and park. Here is a picnic area with the "platform" (view point). Opposite the parking area, left from a cutting, two small tracks join, marked with a stone with a blue dot and two blue arrows. Take the left track (you'll come back on the right one). The path goes through the mountains, partly quite steep. You come to the monastery Viran Kilisi. Nearby is a monumental Cypress tree (Cypressus sempervivens), said to be 500 years old. After about 200 m you come to a path, which is elevated and constructed of stones, about 1 m wide. Probably this path has been used to reach the monastery. A small detour leads you to a cave, which has probably been a hiding place during the fights in 1974.
