Being a key geographic, strategic, commercial and cultural crossroad, Cyprus attracted the interest of travellers, pilgrims, scholars, scientists and men of action, who contributed to the production and standardisation of representations of the Island in significant texts and maps, marking its position on the world's historical, political and cultural 'atlas'.
