Travelling in Cyprus

Who travelled to Cyprus in the 19th century and why?

Nicosia: with a hat and a pencil

In 1985 the traveller artist Tessa Henderson was offered the most challenging proposal ever; to visit Cyprus and to draw the various buildings and monuments around the island. During the programme, the children meet Tessa and philosophize over her artworks, and then, wearing their hats and with their pencils in hand, they walk around the neighbourhood of the museum. Walking in the footsteps of the artist, they explore the architectural treasures of the Old City of Nicosia.
