Bellapais & St. Hilarion Tour

Excursions > North Of Cyprus


In this half day tour you will have the opportunity to visit the ruins of the castle which was said to have inspired Walt Disney’s Snow White - St. Hilarion Castle and to enjoy fabulous views of Kyrenia’s coastline from the top.

This is followed by a visit to Bellapais village where Lawrence Durrell wrote his famous book “Bitter Lemons of Cyprus”, which is an autobiographical work describing the three years (1953–1956) he spent on the island of Cyprus. The village itself is also now very famous as it occupies a wonderfully scenic spot on the foothills of the Five Finger Mountain range. Bellapais Abbey is also regarded as a masterpiece of Gothic Art, and offers fantastic views over Kyrenia and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea beyond
