Chroscheria Castle

A local landmark is Chrysocheria Castle which stands halfway up the valley and looks down on the town. It's quite a steep walk up.

The castle which was built by Crusaders in the Middle Ages. Chrysocheria means 'golden hands' and is something to do wit ha Vrigin Mary icon which had golden hands... we don't kno the full story.

The last people to live here moved out about 300 years ago and it's pretty much a mess now. But you get a nice view down the valley and over the town.
