KANTARA CASTLE - Leaving the Northern wall of the Castle that embraces the steep cliff, the visitor may visit the chamber on the top of which the south wall with its beautiful window stands almost intact. From here the view is majestic.
From this height 2068 ft. above the sea-level the visitor sees the Northern Coast of Cyprus (between Kyrenia and Cape Andrea) all green with forests and olive groves, the Peninsula of Karpasia and the Eastern Messaoria as well as the Famagusta bay. The sight is unique and enchanting.
The Medieval Guard of the Castle however, used this tower not in order to enjoy the view but in order to exchange messages (signals by burning wood) with the guard on Buffavento Castle.
