Cyprus Nature Routes

Perhaps the best way to see a country is on foot. If you love the great outdoors or want to improve your fitness, hiking is ideal. Leave your car and experience the culture and nature of the island in the best possible way.

Cyprus has numerous signposted paths or nature trails, some more challenging than others, but all are a feast for the senses, especially in the springtime when you can experience the sights, sounds and smells of nature at first hand.

Hiking at Troodos Mountains

The Troodos Mountains, whose highest peak almost reaches 2000 metres and is covered in snow in the winter, is a cooler alternative in the summer to the heat of the coast. Here some fine walking is to be had along trails that go through scented forests of pine, past waterfalls and take in magnificent panoramic views across the island.

CULTURE

Church of Ayios Lazaros

The church of Agios Lazaros is built on the coastal zone of the city of Larnaka and is the primary place of worship of Agios Lazaros in Cyprus. The Saint's relationship with the island was particularly close. Following his resurrection he fled to Cyprus, where he met the Apostles Pavlos and Varnavas who ordained him bishop of Kition. The sources also mention that he was laid inside a marble larnax, which bore the inscription "Lazaros the fourday and friend of Christ". Following an edict by the emperor Leo VI, the Saint's relic was transferred from Kition to Constantinople. According to tradition, the church was built during that period (beginning of the 10th century), with imperial funds as an exchange gift for the transfer of the Saint's relic to Constantinople.
