In spring the prize resort of Cyprus
Is Kyrenla. Almost overhanging the
town, St. Illlarlon, castle of Eros,
clings to crude crag.
Beyond the horseshoe harbor, min
iature of Corslcan Rastla'e, there Is
the golden mass of Kyrenla castle,
dwarfing the white and opal town,
set on a green slope between gray
mountains and blue sea. Across the
waters to the north the snowy
heights of the Clllcian Taurus bang
like clouds.
People come to Kyrenla to see the
castles, the monastery, and the
pleasant slopes planted with grain
and dotted wltb olive and carob
trees. They remain nntll the castles

cuttings have lost their first myste
