There is so much to see and do in Cyprus, even if you’ve visited many times before, it can be tempting to keep doing the same things over and over again because you know you love them! Of course you’ll be spending time at the beach, and if you’re staying in one of luxurious villas, then quality time around your very own private pool is a must, but there’s so much more to do in the area that you may not even know about, and one of those things is to visit the Cape Greco Environmental Information & Educational Centre. The name might be a bit of a mouthful, but don’t dismiss it, as this centre is anything but dull and boring!
Situated in the Cape Greco National Park
No visit to Cyprus is complete without a trip to the Cape Greco National Park, especially if you enjoy walking and stunning views. There are some amazing nature trails here, taking you past the famous and beautiful white church, and to the breathtaking sea caves. If you have been to the park before, then you may have noticed the striking minimalist design of the Cape Greco Environmental Information Centre and perhaps wondered what this intriguing was.
Award winning design
If you have an interest in architecture, then do pause before you enter the building as it’s well worth a second look. This building manages to both stand out, and blend in with its rocky surroundings with the colours matching to the red oxidized earth around it. The building, and the architects who designed it won the 2016 Cyprus State Architecture Award.
A wealth of knowledge contained within
The interior is equally as fascinating, not just for the design of the building, but also for that which it contains! Once inside you’ll find three marine aquariums, a wide range of exhibits, and facilities such as a cafe should you require refreshments. While exploring the exhibits you and your family will learn all about the ecosystems of the land and the sea on the Cape Greco peninsula. Whether you’re visiting alone, as a couple or with your family, everyone should find this centre interesting and informative.
So put it on your list
So when you’re putting together your itinerary for your next visit to Cyprus, why not add the Cape Greco Environmental Information Centre to your list? It’s highly educational for the kids, and it’s really interesting for adults too. Being indoors, it can also be a nice escape into the cool, away from the heat of the midday sun. You’ll leave refreshed, ready to take a walk along one of the beautiful Cape Greco park trails, before heading back to the comfort of your villa, a dip in your pool and perhaps a tasty meal cooked alfresco on your secluded terrace.
