      The stone is not far from the village of Kleinwendern, hence the name Wenderner Stein. The highest rock of the Wenderner Stein used to be a popular vantage point, but unfortunately it is now completely ingrown.
      There is a small Marian grotto on the west side.

      It was December 8, 2011 in heavy seas when the EDRO III was en route to Rhodes. The cargo ship was loaded with plasterboard and the nine crew members had to fight hard in the rough sea. The ship ran aground off the island of Cyprus near Pegeia. The crew could be saved.
      The 80 meter long ship was not towed free. The cargo and all environmentally harmful materials have been removed. The wreck lies on the rock at an angle of about 11 degrees and has developed into a habitat for birds and marine animals. Since the shipwreck cannot be visited, the animals can live here undisturbed.
      It has now become a popular photo opportunity and tourist attraction.

      Today we are traveling on the Akamas peninsula. Its tip forms the westernmost point of Cyprus. The next place is Latchi.
      The peninsula probably got the name Akamas from Akamas, the son of Theseus. This is said to have landed there after the Trojan War.
      Akamas is a nature reserve. Of the 530 plant species found there, 35 are endemic.
      The so-called Bath of Aphrodite, a small grotto with a freshwater pool, is located on the peninsula. According to legend, Aphrodite and her lover Adonis are said to have enjoyed themselves here. Ares is said to have killed Adonis out of jealousy while Aphrodite was waiting for him in the grotto.

      The Avakas Gorge is a place where
      Cyprus's nature at its most beautiful shows, the rock formations, together with the botany and the stream that meanders through the gorge, form a wonderful natural spectacle.

      Hidden behind a banana plantation you can find these beautiful caves to marvel at from afar. But be careful, it doesn't have a fence, so it's not suitable for small children.

      "Royal Tombs" - UNESCO World Heritage Site 👑
      The term "royal tombs" is misleading 🤓
      It is much more about tombs of the Cypriot upper class.
      🕯
      The graves date from the 3rd century BC.
      🕯
      The well-preserved underground tombs and chambers were used until the 3rd century AD. repeatedly used for burials.

      We were there for more than 17 minutes, of course, but the GPS signal kept getting lost ...

      The most beautiful village in Cyprus - 850 m high
      Bergdof Omodos.
      Whitewashed houses with blue window frames, much reminiscent of Greece.
      In the village square: handmade lace, wine, fruit.
      Beautiful !
