The historical and cultural north cyprus – St. Hilarion Castle
North Cyprus has plenty of historical and cultural grounds to explore. One of the three magnificent castle ruins in the Kyrenia mountains is St. Hilarion Castle. Built as a look-out tower by the Byzantines on the watch for seaborne invaders, it was further enlarged in the early 13th Century. The castle ruins still sit magnificently on the rocky mountain range and is the best-preserved ruin of the three former strongholds in the Kyrenia mountains.
