Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!
My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)
I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.
So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.
St. Lazarus Church was built back in the 9th century by Leo VI (a Byzantine Emperor). It is a very popular tourist site on the island of Cyprus.
You can find it in the middle of Larnaca. Under the chuch of St. Lazarus you can find a crypt with a tomb (of Agios Lazros), who they say was a friend of Jesus Christ. They also say that he resurrected from the dead, and came to Cyprus in 33 AD.
The church is open all year round, from 08:00-12:30, 14:30-17:30 (Saturday/Sunday: 08:00 - 17:30)
Limassol is a city on the south cost of Cyprus, and it is known for its big large Limassol castle. On the sea front you can find the Prokymea (Molos) Sculpture Park.
It is a popular tourist destination (Limassol has been ranked by TripAdvisor as the 3rd up-and-coming destination in the world, in its Top 10 Traveler’s Choice Destinations on the Rise) and you can have a very nice and safe time there!
Macronissos Beach is one of Ayia Napa's quieter beaches, however in my opinion it is the most beautiful one.
You can explore multiple smaller beaches, all of which have lovely soft white sand. These beaches are much quieter than the main Nissi beach.
You can reach Blue Lagoon by boat from Protaras. The water is completely clear, and you get some amazing underwater views. It is on the Eastern side of the island.
The water is naturally heated from a geothermal source, and is a nice place to go and chill out. It is amazing to be able to see all the different colours in the water.
Kourion Archaeological Site is on the Southwestern coast of Cyprus (13km west of Limassol). Is it part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is full of amazing excavated remains and ruins.
The area was first discovered in the 1820s, however the main excavations happened between the 1930s and 1950s. If you ever get the chance then you should definitely check it out.
Paphos is a city with lots of hidden secrets that you can explore. The city currently has around 32,000 residents (90,000 in the surrounding areas). There is a lot of history (and ancient myths) based in Paphos. The ancient Mosaics of Paphos are considered to be one of the most amazing set of mosaics in the world, dating back to the Greco-Romans era.
However it was only recently (in the 1960s) that they were rediscovered.
The Tombs of the Kings in Paphos is a set of ancient underground tombs, dating back to the 4th century BC.
They are carved out of the solid rock that surrounds the area. The area still have on-going excavations happening at the moment, but most of the main modern excavations happened in the 1970s and 1980s.
