Photographer's Note

This inposant fortress was build by the knights of the Order of Saint John around the 13th century. In the cave there are some cisterns mostly to collect the rain water and in the upper rooms the soldiers were lodged.
Besides the inhabitants did also sugar processing which was cultivated in large plantations in the region. Remainings of a sugar factory are located to the east of the castle.

Happy Eastern to all and see you next week,
Edi
