A visit to Milos of Karavas (Alsancak) with Tuncer Bagiskan

By Chris Krzentz……..

chris-krzentzFollowing a trip by car with my dear friend, Tuncer Bagiskan, the Turkish Cypriot retired archaeologist, when we visited the Lapithos (Lapta) to Karavas (Alsancak) areas to discover Cyprus Heritage, we returned to visit Karavas to visit the ruins of the old mill up in the hills as you will see in the 10 minute video below.

Walking up to the old mill (Milos) is by a track which has an abundance of vegetation on the left hand side and on the right we can look down at some splendid views onto the outskirts of the village below.

On entering the old mill, Tuncer Bagiskan explained the the mill was used to grind wheat into flour and  we saw the two round grinding stones which had been used to create the flour from wheat. Power to turn the stones was generated from water held in a water tower further up the hill which then ran in a channel down to the mill to turn the mechanism that turned the stones.
