Cyprus Stamps 4 May 2017


Cyprus EUROPA 2017 comprising two stamps and a booklet containing a strip of 4 sets of stamps (8 stamps). The common theme adopted by the European Postal Organization  (POSTEUROP)  is "Castles".

The 41 cent stamp depicts the Castle of Larnaka and its present day form. It was originally built by the Ottomans in 1625, replacing an older Lusignan castle which had been damaged. The castle was used as a military garrison residence and to protect the neighbouring anchorage.

The 64 cent stamp depicts the castle of Pafos which was originally built in the 13th century by the Lusignans and was destroyed shortly before the expected invasion of the Ottomans in 1570. Part of this castle was restored by the Ottomans in 1589 thus taking its present form.
