Tradition is an idea composed by many sections. Cultural, religious, national, artistic, linguistic and other traditions are some of the sides composing our national Traditional treasure. All great civilizations are founded on a rich and alive tradition. The term "tradition" is a very important idea, and in that idea are included many creations of the past. Through tradition one can see aspects of the Cypriot history, and culture. But what is our traditional architecture ?
