City of 365 Churches
Just east of the capital sits Famagusta, an ancient port city with archaeological attractions, as well as an abandoned quarter that is popular among tourists as a symbol of the conflict between Turks and Greeks. During medieval times, this city was an important stop along the Silk Road because it contained the deepest harbor in Cyprus. The old part of this city is surrounded by well-preserved Venetian walls, and features famous cathedrals. Though it is home to many important historical monuments, structures, and ruins, Famagusta is perhaps most famous for its southern suburb, Varosha. This area has been a dilapidated ghost town since 1974, when the Turkish military took control of it. Visitors can view these modern remnants of the ongoing tensions between the Greeks and Turks. Famagusta is in Famagusta District. Use our Cyprus day trip planning tool to arrange your visit to Famagusta and other destinations in Cyprus.
