You already know about the amazing St. Hilarion Castle. And, I decided to show all three castles of a protective axis. So, we took our driver and went to Kantara Castle. It was another great day in the life of a traveling trader.
This castle is at the lowest point of three – 560 meters. As St. Hilarion, it was built to serve as a watchtower to see pirates’ ships coming to the island. It is also called Richard Lion Heart Castle. And here is why…
Richard Lion Heart
Richard took Cyprus in his fight against the island’s ruler. It happened in this castle. He was the only one who somehow could get into the castle without being seen by soldiers. Anyway, he had no idea what to do with Cyprus. Richard didn’t have any interest in this island. So, after scratching his head, he decided to sell it to the Knights Templar. Later they resold it to the House of Lusignan.
This Castle is smaller than St. Hilarion Castle and has fewer stairs lol. It saves in hot weather. After a visit to Kantara, we had tasty BBQ. You know there are a lot of cats in the forest here. My kids were so happy feeding them. In a word, we had a great day. And we plan to visit Buffavento Castle soon and share another day in a life of a traveling trader.
