Very well preserved, it gives you the idea of how it looked this city surrounded by walls and gates in medieval times. When in Lefkosia, Famagusta Gate is a must!

True , it is just a gate, but it is an integral part of the impressive Venetian walls that contain the old town. They can be best appreciated from a bird's eye view point. It is also a community and cultural center and events are...More

Other than the history of the gate built by the British there is little around so it is really a photograph opportunity.

This seems like just a plain old gate, but it’s far from that. Do your research before you visit it in order to truly appreciate the site. It bears a lot of historical significance from the time!

Well it is part of the Venetian architecture of the city, but one can visit it just if passing by. Zero esthetical value.

This is one of gates of Nicosia when it was with in the Venetian walls. This was the gateway that lead to Famagusta town. Now is more like a place for events, like concerts or exhibitions.
