Galata’s Unique Cultural Stroll – 25 Feb.

The outing of Saturday 25 February offered a unique combination of stroll and culture; we visited seven churches in Galata, dating to the 1st half of the 16th century, when Cyprus was occupied by the Venetians; we also visited the church in Old Kakopetria, from the same period. Importantly, we succeeded in admiring the treasures inside five of these churches. Participants further benefited from a splendid weather, the rich vegetation, walking along the river and from Yiannis’ story telling, by the big rock in Kakopetria. Join us on 5 March at Atalanti https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/troodos-atalanti-walk-sunday-5-march/
