Cyprus is an incredible island. A place where history and legend merge, under a clear blue sky that illuminates the golden fields, while the calm waters of the Mediterranean caress the coasts of this island at the turn of the East and the West. Discovering the history of Cyprus is a bit like rereading the history of the Mediterranean, or at least a summary of it. Ancient Greeks and rich Romans, saints in search of refuge and crusading knights in search of fortune, Venetian merchants and ruthless janissaries: that of Cyprus is a story that becomes a meeting (sometimes clash) between different cultures.
