St. Hilarion Castle and Kyrenia

Last Tuesday was a national holiday here so we took the oppurtunity to take a trip across the line to the north.  We visited St. Hilarion castle.  It was in use during the 11th-14th centuries. The construction is amazing.  With cool breeze and beautiful views (and strategic views) and defendablity, you can see why the ruling families decided to locate on the highest mountain in the area.

After we finished there we drove along the coast for a bit.  Then we went to Kyrenia to get some ice cream. 

Check out the pix.

    What an awesome view! Is this in the Turkey part of Cyprus? What makes the ice cream so special?
