Some more Cyprus landscapes

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Panos Kazanelis, Jul 25, 2005.

  1. Birthplace of Aphrodite, 25km east of Pafos.
    According to legend, Aphrodite goddess of love and beauty rose from the waves in this strikingly beautiful spot. The Greek name, Petra tou Romiou 'The Rock of the Greek' is associated with the legendary frontier-guard of Byzantine times Digenis Akritas, who kept the marauding Saracens at bay with amazing strength. It is said that he heaved this large rock into the sea destroying the enemy's ship.
