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.

Even today, the ancient port city is the commercial center of the northern part of the island. Even if the port seems quite bleak, if many renovations would do it good, there is a lot going on here. There is also a free port here. For an immediate old town from an imposing city wall, the development of the city in more than 2000 years shows. Again, money is needed for the restoration of the city The new city with many universities and students has some beautiful buildings, but the building sins clearly catch the eye. Hopefully they won't stand for 2,000 years. A visit to Famagusta does not need a multi-day expedition. Especially the city of modern ruins, the buffer zone to the Greek part of the island is worth a trip. Here, an uninhabited ruined area has emerged in the middle of a former living city. This is the direct call to put an end to this nonsense.
La vieille ville elle-même est demeurée presque inhabitée elle est en grande partie occupée par l'armée turque depuis 1974. La ville se trouve 9 km au sud-est du site archéologique de Salamine more »The old town itself has remained almost uninhabited and has been largely occupied by the Turkish army since 1974. The city lies 9 km southeast of the archaeological site of Salamis
Love the walled city. There are so many restaurants and bars and things to see. The atmosphere is always great, if you're lucky there may be a little street festival on even. It's so nice to park when you arrive and then walk for the next few days for a change. Make sure to eat in D&B with the beautiful mosque as your backdrop, it's simply stunning.
Famagusta city walls are famous and very old. There are lot of historical places and it's always nice to be here to look it's history and places around. There are many restaurants and cafe nearby to enjoy and relax the famagusta ( also known as gazimagusa).
