Foinikas: Abandoned Cyprus village

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this excellent drone video of the well-known abandoned village of Foinikas on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, compliments of AirVuz contributor Travel and Drones.  Located on the southwestern part of the island, it's believed to have been founded by the Knights Templar in the 12th century.  It was subsequently occupied by Turkish Cypriots for centuries, many of whom were displaced following the Turkish invasion of the island in 1974.  Its final came from a dam project which put much of the town's land underwater.
