Looking for historical traces In addition to traveling around, my girlfriends and I also love military and history. So when I came to an ancient military base this time, how could I not come to visit, and not come to see its strong historical atmosphere and majesty. This bunker has existed here for thousands of years. My girlfriends and I are interested in it, but unfortunately we don't know much about it. So I found a local resident to explain to us. Under his vivid and lively explanation, we learned new knowledge. For example, this bunker was not originally used as a military base, but a beautiful castle for a little princess. It is no wonder that besides the solemnity of the bunker, there is also a hint of the beauty of the princess castle. After thousands of years of wind and rain, this bunker has become very old, and the walls have become somewhat weathered. But he is still like an unbeatable soldier, standing strong here, protecting this loving land. If I come here next time! ! I will definitely come here again! ! Practical TIPS: 1. Tickets: 2.5 euros. 2. The location of the bunker is in the suburban scenic area. Address: Agiou Antoniou 1 | Road to Paphos, Limassol, Cyprus
