Visiting Ancient Amathounta

Archaeological sites are dotted throughout Cyprus making the island a treasure for history enthusiasts. On the way back from the beach on our first evening, we passed the Amathounta archaeological site and decided to stop. Unfortunately the main area was closed so we couldn’t get any info on this ancient city. That didn’t stop the ever-adventurous Verse, as he encouraged me to hike up a nearby trail where we discovered a network of tracks that showcased amazing views and other intriguing ruins that were also a part of the site.  Here a few pictures from our visit.  Chilling on the stone slabs Gorgeous Wildflowers growing everywhere Spectacular Views Always up to something Be careful where you step. I wonder what this was?  Interesting details and carvings found on the stone Brilliant sunset on our first evening in Cyprus Blessed to have these adventures
