I was very disappointed that I couldn't photograph the inside as it is really beautiful. Being used as a antique store. The exterior totally belies the interior. Must see spot.

As you can see from the photographs, in effect the only remaining parts of the city walls is a single tower now containing a shop. As such it's hard to call this an attraction per se.

As a history buff, I will recommend the Girne (Kyrenia) castle to all my visitors. The castle and its walls are breathtaking and well worth taking time out to visit. The view of the old Venetian harbor is worth the price of admission by itself.

Lovely old Lusignan Tower and part of the old wall now surrounded by shops and cafes. The tower itself houses an 'ethnic' shop and a selection of interesting photographs of old Kyrenia

The towers of the old Girne Walls were built in the Lusignan Period with the aim of protecting the people living against attacks. The Walls that surround the fortification of old Girne were built considerably thin; they proved to be ineffective as gunpowder was introduced...More
