Beyond Fabrica Hill

Published 28th of November, 2017

A few weeks ago we blogged about Fabrica Hill. We went to find out about the new walkway, and to see what was on the hill. The blog was very popular, but left people chomping at the bit for more. Why didn't you feature the amphitheatre? Where will the walkway end? Why are there never any hedgehogs in your blogs? Most of these questions were asked. So the other day, we went back to find the answers. Not only that, but we also found that most elusive of creatures, an artist's impression of what the walkway will look like when it is complete. So read on to find out...

A Familiar Site


We parked in the same spot we did last time. We were going to park around the other side of the hill, but there are a lot of diversions in place at the moment, so in the end we gave up and parked in familiar territory. As before, we approached from the direction of Kato Paphos, coming up below the big church of Agioi Anargyroi, and parked in an area just before the dual carriageway.

Pre-Assembled Walkway


While we were in the carpark we noticed some pre-assembled walkway pieces lying in the grass. We took a quick photo so you could see what they looked like close up.

The Side of the Hill


This time, we wanted to visit the Amphitheatre, so we avoided the hill, and walked around the side. You soon come across this little shrine.

Bit of a Clamber


A quick climb and we are there.

A Typical Shrine


I still think it's lovely that Cypriots can leave these shrines open without fear of them being vandalised.

The Enclosure of Agios Neophytos

The other day we set off to find the Enclosure of Agios Neophytos. We had seen a video of it and it looked interesting. A remote monastery in a cliff? That ticks all the right boxes. However, there wasn't much to see when we found the enclosure. We had neglected to pick the key up, and our view through the gate didn't reveal much. Fortunately, the journey to and from the place was so much fun that yet again I find myself having to cherry pick the best pictures rather than pad an article out. So enjoy our journey, and with the map at the end to guide you, why not plan your own route...?

Cyprus Orchids

If you only visit in the heat of summer, you could be forgiven for thinking that a lot of Cyprus is like a desert; brown and arid. However, the truth is somewhat different. During Spring, most of Cyprus is green, as recent blogs will have shown. Not only that, but spring flowers come out to bloom, painting the hills and valleys with a sea of colour. If you are lucky, or you know where to look, you will also come across fields of orchids...
