Latchi

Whilst on holiday in Cyprus I managed to find a couple of Pillboxes in a small village called Latchi, situated on the west coast about an hours drive away from Paphos.

They were on top of a steep hill, the first with a single embrasure overlooking the bay. This was connected by a slit trench to an open gun pit, which was in turn connected to another pillbox. This had a single embrasure overlooking the far left side of the bay. I found an identification plate but am not sure when they were built.
