Northern Cyprus – History of Saint Hilarion Castle

Saint Hilarion Castle, Northern Cyprus To give you a brief history of the Saint Hilarion Castle, I’ll cite the Cyprus Paradise website: The castle is named after St. Hilarion, a hermit monk who fled from persecution in the Holy Land and lived and died in a cave in the mountains. Later in the 10th century, the Byzantines built a church and monastery here. Along with Kantara and Buffavento castles, St. Hilarion was originally built as a watch tower to give warning of approaching pirates who launched a continuous series of raids on Cyprus and the coasts of Anatolia. Although the monastery and a church were built here originally, the first references to the castle are found in 1191 records.
