Thanks for your great review
Hope to see you again.
We have different periodical exhibitions
Located near the Archbishop's Palace and the National Struggle Museum, this is a wonderful museum for those interested in the folk art of Cyprus. Plan to spend at least an hour here.
Byzantine art museum located next door.
A well curated collection well laid out over several floors. Covers art works as well as artefacts and several areas have hidden items in drawers
In house cafeteria available and a small gift shop.
A calm oasis in a hot climate.
