This week I’m in Cyprus! Of course I can’t go all this way without experiencing some of the history.
So today I’m on a coach trip visiting Pano Lefkara as our first stop.
This beautiful little village is incredibly small but yet has quite an influence on one person in particular.
This is where lefkara lace was born. The very lace that Leonardo Da Vinci had to get his hands on. He visited the little village once upon a time and it is said that this is the lace seen on the table of the famous painting ‘The last supper’.
You can visit all the little stores in the village and watch them create this lace.
There is next to nothing here but that’s what makes it so lovely. We headed first to the church where we went inside and discovered the interesting historical markings that lined the walls.
Rather creepy if you ask me..
It’s even pretty to look at perched at the top of the hill.
Nestled at the foot of the Troodos Mountains, this village has beautiful far reaching views too.
We walked around for a little while admiring the beautiful little cobbled streets.
I love the colourful flowers you find abroad. The brightly coloured buildings are also a bonus!
We even admired the architecture as we stumbled across this beauty.
Lefkara is one of those places where any longer than an hour you’d be bored there. But a short visit to admire this beautiful little piece of history is well worth it. Definitely somewhere I enjoyed taking photographs.
The blue sky’s and perfect weather definitely helped make it more enjoyable, that and a freshly squeezed lemonade!
