Saint Hilarion Castle

Yesterday, we took a cab to Saint Hilarion Castle just above Kyrenia. A very lovely castle that Walt Disney used as a backdrop for Snow White. It is the castle of the witch. It is set high (about 1300 meters above Kyrenia) overlooking the city and the Mediterranean below.

We spent an hour looking over the site and discovered a pretty well preserved historical site. You can read about it here.

The taxi ride is the only means to get to the site but the price of 70 TL is well worth it.

I have uploaded lots of pictures of the site to my Picasa account.

We leave for Istanbul tomorrow evening. Stay tuned for more pictures and stories.
