A tour to Larnaca today

The Swedish Club in Paphos - we are more than 200 members - arranged a very interesting tour today! We stopped to visit a very old "settlement" in Choriokitia dated to the 7th millenium B.C. So interesting - especially as we had a perfect guide in Ulla, who knows everthing.

In Choriokitia we also stopped to taste and learn the production of Halomi - though not my type of cheese it was interesting....

After that we stopped at the Hala Sultan Tekkesi Mosque where we leart that this mosque is the fourth most important for the muslimes around the world after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. We did not know that although we have been living here in Cyprus for 8,5 years...

And then we stopped at Agios Lazarus church built during the 800th century. Fantastic!

Before we went back to Paphos we had a fantastic meze at the restaurant Monte Carlo  in Larnaca at the seaside.

We climbed up and had a wonderful view over the settlements

And for certain the view is fantastic - so we do understand why they built their stone houses there

Haloumi tasting....

The grave of Hala Sultan Tekkesi in Larnaca

And this is the so famous mosque...

That we did visit

And then the total differens to the golden church of Agios Lazarus...
