The Carmelite Nicole le Huen landed at Salines:

Wednesday, August 29, was the feast of S. John Baptist in the church of Cyprus. We landed at Salines. There is a church founded by S. Lazarus, the seat of a bishop. There are no other dwellings than a house for a begute. There we found bread and wine, grapes and pomegranates. We slept inside the church like good sheep.
