We were in Nicosia and searched out Paphos Gate. If you start at Lora Street it is fairly easy to find with a number of Tourist Signs pointing you in the right direction. Great piece of History with the Old City Walls still generally intact....More

We parked our car in a small private lot (€3/all day) just to the north of the gate near the auto crossing into the TRNC. Interesting for foreigners to see the Green Line dividing the city. Time has stood still. You can drive through the...More

Generally speaking the Old town walls of Nicosia are of main interest due to their architectural significance being a Renaissance rather complete set of walls in this part of the world. They are not always well preserved (much of the covering stone was robbed), were...More

Walked by the Paphos gate on our way to the Cypriot Museum. It is notable as one of the three main gates from when Nicosia was a medical walled city.

This 'gate' is an opening and completely different from the other two actual gates. It is an opening in the Venetian Walls where a road runs through and was hard for me to find as I was looking for an actual gate. There are some...More

Certainly not worth going out of your way to see the Gate but, depending on the route you take, it can be seen on the way to the superb Cyprus Museum

Just walking this city is interesting; such a mixture of old and new. And you can tell it has seen a lot of life over the years.

I've visited here before with my family and it never ceases to amaze me how time has almost 'stood still' when I see the green line. It brings to you how scary war can be and the impact it can have on a country. The...More

Amazing as this was an entry point in to the city hundreds of years ago. Now you look straight across at the green line and Turkish Territory. The sense of history pervades. I have been staying next door.
