Description

Lusignans, Franks, Venetians. They carved their own history on the much-afflicted island. Their presence is witnessed by castles which they built or restored, each introducing their own techniques, so as to protect the island from the enemy’s eye. Full of history, legends and tradition, are the Lusignan fortress of Nicosia, the Frankish walls of Famagusta, the fort of Kyrenia, the crusader fortresses on Pentadaktylos, (the castles of St Hilarion, Buffavento and Kantara), the forts of Paphos, Limassol and Kolossi, as well as many others from history…The art historian Dr Rita Severis pleasantly surprises us once more. Going back through the centuries, between history and the folk tradition, she offers us exquisite new research, which only she can give, with her unparalleled mastery of writing, scientific knowledge and her great love and well-known devotion to the history of our island…”Hellenic Bank Cultural Centre
