General description: St.Hilarion Castle

St. Hilarion Castle is part of the Kyrenia mountain range located in the northern part of Cyprus. In the past, it was one of the three strongholds in this mountain range. It was transformed into a castle from a monastery, constructed in the 10th century, which was named after St. Hilarion – a monk who chose this location as the ultimate place for his solitude.

The building is divided into three main parts. The two lower divisions of the castle were devoted to financial and economic purposes, whereas the upper division became a home for the members of the royal family.

Important information:

It is possible to reach St. Hilarion Castle  from the Lefkosa motorway. There is a specially prepared car park in front of the building, just outside the main gate. Additionally, one should bear in mind that there is a military area surrounding St. Hilarion Castle, thus taking photos before entering the gate is strictly forbidden.
