As it is Halloween and the spirits of the departed are set to walk the Earth, placated only by sweets and small denomination coins, we thought it the perfect time to pay a visit to some spooky Akamas sites. So sit back and enjoy our trip to a pre-Christian Burial Ground and a spooky old mine, with not a janitor in sight.
On The Akamas
We are near Smigies Picnic area. You pass that church in the distance to get there, if you are coming up from the coast.
An Ancient Grave
This graveyard was excavated last century.
Next Time I Will Bring A Ladder
This was the best hole we found. These tombs, I am told had three chambers, and each entrance was visible here. Somebody had used a tree trunk as a makeshift ladder, but I didn't trust it would hold my post-picnic weight, so I decided not to go down.
I would imagine that a lot of the contents of these tombs now resides in Nicosia Museum. They are still guarded though.
Gravity-defying lizards still protect what's left of the contents of the tombs.
