Discovering Soli and the Palace of Vouni
The palace of Vouni and the Basilica of Soli: Where the city kingdoms of ancient Cyprus met Persian rule. Two ancient sites with a rich history, a palace probably in the most beautiful spot of the island, two kingdoms enriched through copper trade and the presence of Greek classical tradition. The palace of Vouni is a stunning monument to visit, a particular moment of Cypriot history where Greek influence takes over oriental building habits. The Basilica of Soli, recently restored is a testimony of the deep roots that Christianity has in the island.
