Kantara Castle

Kantara Castle is the easternmost of the three castles situated on the Kyrenia mountain range in Cyprus. Lying at 630 metres above sea level, Kantara is well positioned to control the entrances to Karpass Peninsula and Mesaoria plain. The name 'Kantara' is believed to derive from the Arabic word qantara, which means a small bridge. It is believed that the Byzantines built the castle in the 10th century as a lookout post against raiding Arabs.

Located at 35.4064, 33.9233 (Lat. / Lng.), about 2 miles away.
