Cyprus attractions range from historical religious sites to places of Natural Beauty. Many are well know over the world, including Unesco world heritage sites like the Tombs of the Kings in Pafos. The Archbishop's Palace in Nicosia is also a prominent part of the history of Cyprus.
The Agia Napa monastery is another major historical site and is located in the middle of the village of Ayia Napa surrounded by a high wall. It has extensive links to the history of Cyprus, as the name of the village is taken from the ancient Greek word for wooded valley, “Napa”. It was built in 1500 AD and is a well known landmark close to Protaras.
Another Cyprus attraction is the naturally beautiful Cape Greko, which lies close to Protaras on the way to Ayia Napa. It is a protected natural park and has some beautiful and stunning sea caves, making it a major draw for scuba divers.
With the country surrounded by the beautiful Mediterranean sea there are more than enough beaches for you to experience. Protaras has one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Cyprus: the blue flag awarded Fig Tree Bay.
