Geocache Description:


We created this three stage multi cache when in search of one of the thirteen remaining Venetian Bridges in Cyprus(source: CTO). We hope you will be as delighted as we were in discovering this gem from the past.

Stage one is at the above co-ordinates where you should take note of the date carved into a plaque on the stone structure.
Call these numbers A,B,C and D respectively.

Stage two can be found at:- N34 deg 5B.4D4 E033deg 0A.(B-A)(C+A)(B-D)
This will bring you to a flat uninspiring concrete river crossing hiding a surprisingly intact pretty Venetian bridge. You will need to locate a small path to the left of the far side of the main bridge giving safe access to view the Venetian Bridge and to obtain the information for the final stage.
Count the number of wooden planks on the metal viewing platform..... call this number E.

The co-ordinates to take you to the final stage of this cache are:-
N3(D-A)deg 00.DAC E033deg 0(B-C).EA

You will not need a 4x4 vehicle to do this cache, but we would recommend ‘4x4 shoes’ for the final stage.
Take plenty of water with you and as always beware of snakes.
