Even More Murals

Published 29th of October, 2017

Each time we take our camera around the new old Paphos, we seem to discover another set of murals. Last week was no different. I had to visit the main Cyta Office and as I had some time to kill I took the camera for a wander. I will publish most of the shots in the next blog, but this is a small article to show the murals we had previously missed.

A Quick Recap

As part of the rejuvenation of Old Paphos and Pafos2017, various wall murals were commissioned. We covered at lot of them in this blog. Later we found some more when we went on another wander.

And There's More...

No signature other than the initials "E T" in the corner. Lovely picture though.

Colour Nomads Strike Again

Color Nomads are a street art collective that created a lot of the murals in Paphos. You can see more of their work, and what they get up to, on their facebook page.

Paphos Murals

If you take a wander around the streets of Paphos, both old and new, you will occasionally stumble upon some random art installations.The patchwork tree is one such example, but there are other exhibits too numerous to mention here. Today, we are going to have a look at a subset of these works, and examine some of the murals you will find. Most of them are situated in a small area to the west of Kennedy Square. However, there are a few others scattered around, so it pays to explore...

The Geroskipou Mural

When we went looking for the new Geroskipou Sculpture Park, we also wanted to take in the Old Camp, as we had seen it previously in passing, and thought it deserved a closer look. As luck would have it, they were right next to each other. However, what we didn't expect to find was a large mural that had appeared, on one of the walls of the camp. As a result, this article is somewhat larger than we originally anticipated, so sit back and enjoy the art...

Paphos Life Road Trip #1

As summer approaches we thought we would put together some road trips suitable for all types of cars. No off-roading will be involved, and the emphasis will be on sight-seeing.

Abandoned Villages - Statos

Statos is unusual, as abandoned villages go. People deserted it not because of inter-communal fighting, but because of the threat of landslides. And then, no sooner had they emptied, some of the abandoned buildings were repopulated. Were villagers returning, or had outsiders moved in, prepared to take the risk of landslide?

Agios Savvas Tis Karonos

We first discovered this abandoned monastery a few years ago, when we were out geocaching.Visiting again, a few years later, I am paying more attention to the architecture than cache hiding places.

Plus, as it is slap bang in the middle of the Diarizos Valley, you know you can make a day trip out of a visit to the area, if you want to...

Stroumpi Murals

If you drive along the B7 from Paphos to Polis, you will eventually hit Stroumpi. It is about midway between the two towns, and nestled on the Paphos Hills. If you look to your right as you ascend the hill, you will notice some lovely murals adorning the walls. In due course, I will write a blog on the whole of Stroumpi, but today, I just want to concentrate on these murals...
