Being at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, Cyprus always played a crucial role in the power struggle of Mediterranean civilizations. Its prime location caused its glory as well as its doom. From a crowning site for Jerusalem's kings to deserted ghost towns and piling ruins.
From subliminal messages to politically "incorrect" representations, we study the cohabitation of different religions in Cyprus and their mutual interaction stressing the sociopolitical impact of these encounters.
We focus on the architectural and artistic representation of faith and point out the resulting unique blends, which make up the peculiarity of Cyprus.

Houssem was well organized and informative. We learned a great deal. His English was excellent and his vocabulary was extensive. We were also pleased with the technical support we received from the company. Our "travelers" were not very tech savvy and the information provided in advance was helpful and to the point. Plus, a technical person came on in the beginning of the tour to insure that we were all connected properly. Great job. Thanks Houssem!
