500 year old Cypress tree at Nisou

"...‘the pine of the franc’ and this is an indication of its age (from the time when the francs or the latins were the rulers here).  It is one of the tallest trees on the island with a height of 28 meters and a trunk perimeter of over 4.5 meters. It is 500 years old and looks quite lively.  It can be spotted to the north side of the road (50 –100 meter further in) on the old Nicosia-Limassol highway. "
