Cyprus is filled with various bridges (Venetian, Medieval etc ) all over the island. These beautiful locations remind us of fairy tales and transport us back in time to hundreds of years ago.

It is well known fact that Cyprus had been occupied by a variety of conquerors over the course of time, with many conquerors leaving their mark on the island.

Many elements of their culture, civilisation, folklore and architecture have been incorporated with that of the island’s to create what we know today.

In particular many of these treasures have been hidden by nature and are waiting for us to find them.

One of the mountainous treasures are the various bridges that stand out for their majestic construction in combination with the mountain environment composing a fairy-tale scene.

There are dozens of bridges on the island that have assisted with trade as well as transportation on the island. They now stand proud for their debt and wait for us to discover them hidden over the rivers, in the forests and villages in Cyprus.

According to the government list, the department of antiquities has declared twenty-seven of the island’s bridges as ancient monuments in order to protect and designate them.
