A walk through St Hilarion Castle, Kyrenia – Cyprus

Good morning ! 

St Hilarion Castle was for us, the highlight of our short trip to Cyprus. After going to Nicosia and crossing the “Cyprus/Turkey” border, we went further north towards Girne.

On the way you pass by Kyrenia, and please do make a stop at the castle.

It is to me, very different to the few (not many) castles we’ve been to. Built along the top of the mountain, it follows its profile so it’s sorta camouflaged. It’s a good hike up to the top though mind you, so bring water!

Apparently this was what inspired Walt Disney for the castle in Snow White. What do you think? 🙂
