Kykkos Monastery is the most famous christian monastery of Cyprus. It was established almost 1000 years ago by the Byzantian government of the island.
Inside the monastery there is an icon of Virgin Mary. This icon is never looked at as it’s hidden behind a protective covering. Only churchmen can see the icon when they clean it.

Cyprus doesn’t have many rivers and waterfalls, that’s why Caledonia is very popular for tourists and local people.
Do you know what Caledonia means? It is a Latin name for Scotland. Why do the waterfalls have the same name? These waterfalls were discovered by a Scotish expedition in 1878 and resembled the nature of Scotland!
