Famagusta City Walls features about 200 buildings--remnants of what used to be one of the world's wealthiest cities, according to legend. Built over the ancient Egyptian city of Arsinoe, the site had seen numerous different rulers. You can observe traces of the great civilizations in its Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance buildings, which are crumbling under the effects of time and battles. The town, however, still lives today and offers a number of quaint bars and cafes. Walk along the streets of a place that's torn between millennia.

  • This is my first time in the North Cyprus. I am lucky to be in the island in February, sunny fresh weather made my day with a walk along the wall of the old city.  more »
  • So beautiful place. Full of history. You can find several old churches unfortunately almost in ruins. The charm of the city is exceptional. To be visited.  more »

  • Very amazing and beautiful place. I loved the view of the wall and how it looks very old and strong also there are lot of historical buildings inside the city
  • Famagusta is in the Northern Part of Cyprus(Turkish Side) and in order to come here from the South side of Cyprus(Greek Side) you will need your passport. Old Famagusta City, is an amazing view and rich in history, there are allot of building in ruins. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because it is a tourist trap and prices are much higher in this area, make sure you transfer your money to local currency because if you don’t you can pay 2-4x more depending on the current exchange rate.
