Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We visited here a couple of times. Its a very quiet location. Nice to investigate. Kids enjoyed a pine cone fight. There a picnic facilities and the views are amazing.
Many of the plants have name plate identifies and the park is nicely laid out.
Due to the climate tho' although this is a botanical garden it can be quite barren at times.
WE would probably visit this area again if we revisit Cyprus.

We drove up the Troodos mountains from Limassol and down into Nicosia on the route back. This gave us amazing views from such a height. The tops were dusted with snow and it was raining lightly. Our aim was to visit the final resting place of Archbishop Makarios. He is buried in a tomb just passed the Kykkos Monastry. It is not a real tourist destination, but my first visit to Cyprus was in 1977 a couple of days before the great man died. The whole of Cyprus went into a state of mourning with the body laying in State. I have memories of my mum visiting his body.
Since my last visit to Cyprus ten years ago, there seems to be some development taking place on route to the grave. They have transferred his large statue that was at the museum of his name in Nicosia up to his grave. The path leading up, now has beautiful coloured mosaics of the saints on route up. The is also evidence of more works taking place, as areas were cordoned off.
The grave is guarded by Greek soldiers who are armed. I don't know why. Most people visiting I can only imagine is to pay their respects to such a great man, who influenced the Cypriot men and women.
It makes me wonder if I ever had the choice where I would be buried, I would probably choose the spot where the Archbishop is buried, cause the views are amazing.
