The Region

Famagusta

Famagusta is a fascinating medieval walled city with oodles of charm and lots to explore

Thanks to its troubled history Famagusta is in fact two towns rolled into one. The ancient walled city of Famagusta is much as it was over five hundred years ago when Ottoman siege engines lay beyond its walls. Meanwhile the modern day town and port flourishes

Seven hundred years ago Famagusta was the richest city on earth; famed throughout the world for its mercantile magnificence. Famagusta’s economy boomed under Venetian rule, fed by trade routes that spanned the globe from England to India. In fact, the city was so well known that Shakespeare chose it as the setting for his play Othello. Famagusta’s new wealth spurred on a frenzy of medieval building, many of which can be seen today, including: the Cathedral of St Nicolas, numerous houses and the remains of the fortified citadel. However jealous eyes watched the city and in 1571 the Ottamans invaded and laid seige to Famagusta and eventually the people of Famagusta had to surrender or starve to death. Famagusta soon slid into decline to become a remote ‘backwater posting’ that normally signaled the end of an official’s career.

Ironically this neglect preserved the city. Today the shell of the walled city survives; an impressive reminder of a colourful past. The old city is surrounded by one of the best preserved Venetian fortifications in the Eastern Mediterranean. There are plenty of medieval/renaissance buildings that can be visited. Unfortunately most of them were severely damaged during the Turkish siege of the city in 1571. Many cannon balls can still be seen in the fortification walls as well as in the walls of these buildings. Specially noteworthy are the Cathedral of St. Nicholas (converted to a mosque after the Ottoman conquest and re-named Lala Mustafa Paşa Mosque) and St. George of the Greeks church with its frescoes. There is plenty more to see if you stroll around the old town, where there is something of  interest in almost every corner of the old town, which has been recently renovated and retains much of its historical appeal.

Famagusta offers a variety of shops from clothing and gifts to home stores,  the Old Town has a number of specialised souvenir shops for those looking for traditional handcrafted items. There is a wide variety of restaurants both in the old city as well as in the modern city. Those in the old city are mostly located around the Namık Kemal Square and in the modern town, most restaurants and bars are located on the “Salamis Road”. Famagusta Quayside (locally known as Palm Beach) has become very popular over the years since the restoration of the area. There are a number of cafés and restaurants to choose from offering drinks and snacks and a fantastic sandy beach with good facilities and water sports in the summer months . Close by is the buffer zone between the north and south,  a deserted ghost town. This part of Famagusta is locked in time and is a melancholy symbol of an island divided. It is now  possible to cross freely into Southern Cyprus, you can cross the green line at the  nearby border crossing located inside the British sovereign base at Agios Nikolaos.
