72_cyrpus_salamisI wanted blue skies, sun and interesting things to see. We’ve found them in Cyprus! These are part of the Salamis Ruins in the north of Cyprus (the Turkish part). It was the capital of Cyprus up until  the 4th century BC and contains many Roman ruins. Ayios Ephiphanios Basilica was the last basilica to be built in Cyprus (about 400 AD). It was destroyed in the 7th century after the Arab raids.

Je voulais un ciel bleu, du soleil, et des choses intéressantes à voir. Nous les avons trouvés à Chypre ! Voici une partie des ruines de Salamine dans le nord du Chypre (la partie turque). Salamine était la capitale du Chypre jusqu’au 4ème siècle avant Jésus Christ et a laissé beaucoup de ruines romaines. La basilique de Ayios Ephiphanios faut la dernière basilique construite à Chypre (vers 400 après JC. Elle fut détruite au 7ème siècle  pendant les invasions turques.
