Declan Mescall (Features Editor Travelbiz) brings you more pictures and reports from the Turkish Airlines and Cyprus Premier Mega Fam Trip to North Cyprus.

Our group was brought on a visit to the ancient Bellapais Monastery situated in a tiny picturesque village of the same name perched on a hillside overlooking the city of Kyrenia and the Mediterranean Sea in Northern Cyprus. Bellapais means beautiful place and it certainly is. The ruin is of a monastery built in the 13th century which was subsequently hit by an earthquake. The Abbey’s still standing refectory is now used for concerts and lectures and is a venue for local music festivals held during the summer season.
