Check out ths Eco Art Show at the Shrine Caves!

Published 20th of October, 2019

We visited the Ayios Georgios Shrine Caves quite a while ago, but returned recently to make a virtual tour. We were pleasently surprised when we did so to find that the area now hosted an outdoor Eco Art Exhibition. This place is really worth checking out, and makes a lovely walk.

Cat in a Pram

This made me smile, there was a baby buggy here which had a sleeping cat in it. We were at the location for a couple of hours, while we made the tour, and when we left, the buggy was still there, with a different cat in it. So perhaps it is always there, and is designed for moggies?

The Church

This is the Ayios Georgios church itself. The image is a still shot from the tour, which is why it is a bit fuzzy. On the tour you can rotate the image 360 degrees and see what is behind you.

Skarfos Revisited

It's been quite some time since we visited Skarfos Bridge. One of the most accessible of the Venetian Bridges in the Paphos region, it is nevertheless off most people's radars.
