Paphos in Autumn
Balls Of Steel
There are two main routes to Foinikas. One is cut off, as you have just seen. The other is via Nata. There is a third route however, but until the summer this wasn't suitable for road vehicles. Indeed, I posted a film of me getting stuck on it a while ago.
I knew though, that they had made a new track next to the place I got stuck, so it was now possible to navigate. However, you should only do this if you know what you are doing and have the means to dig yourself out if you get stuck.
Foinikas From Above
So here we are back in Foinikas. Everything looks a bit golden yellow now. It is a great time for exploration, as the vegetation is about as flat as it will get before it starts growing again.
I love this part of Paphos.
I won't go into detail about Foinikas now. It has a lot of history attached to it, going back to the time of the Knights Templar. If you want to know more about the history, check out the links to other blogs below.
There's a nice oven. I mention this because the sights you see here will not be here forever. These abandoned villages are works in progress. In a few years, there will be much less to see.
