Return To Amiantos Hospital
Amiantos Hospital was abandoned in the Eighties, when the nearby mine closed down. along with the nearby village of Pano Amiantos. Now it is slowly being reclaimed by nature while at the same time being used as a sketchpad by the local graffiti artists. If you want some easy-access Urban Exploring in an amazin location, it is a good place to head for.
We first reported from this area six years ago. If you want to take a look at that, see our original report on The Abandoned Hospital at Amiantos Mine. We didn't have a drone then though, so were unable to bring you shots like this.
This time we parked in the same location, because that is the only entrance. To find out exactly where this is, use the map here. it is worth a trip, and doesn't require a 4X4 to get to. Plus you are near other attractions like the nature reserve, and not too far away from Kakopetria.
Nature vs Spraypaint
Nature is competing with the local graffiti artists to see who can prettify the area. I think nature is winning.
On your arrival you should keep to the right. This will take you past some windows that have had the glass broken out of them. You may be tempted to see this as a point of entry, but there is no need. Why risk cutting your hands when there is an easier route in a short while?
Some of the graffiti sprayers have more talent than others.
