Around Bellapais and Kyrenia Harbour

These were taken at the end of February up at Bellapais Monastery just outside Kyrenia on the north coast of Cyprus, and later on at Kyrenia's scenic old harbor. Bellapais Monastery dates back to the late twelfth century, while the harbor at Kyrenia dates back to Roman times, but started to become what it is today during Venetian rule of the island in the 16th century.
