Welcome to Bellapais (Beylerbeyi)


Bellapais found literary fame after being immortalised by British writer Lawrence Durrell, who lived here during the Ethniki Organosi tou Kypriakou Agona (EOKA; National Organisation for the Cypriot Struggle) uprising against British rule. His entertaining memoir of his time here, Bitter Lemons of Cyprus, is a love letter to the village and a way of life now long gone.
