Famagusta City Walls, Famagusta

4.4
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 area has had significant investment from the EU to conserve and maintain the walls and artefacts. The gardens are beautifully maintained. Access to the top of the ramparts is by stairs. There are some interesting Venetian stone lions to be seen. If you are here also take a look at the nearby Othello Tower.
  • Incredibly impressive.There was a water filled moat years ago but there is a severe water shortage in Cyprus.I was very impressed when i saw the old city walls and i know you will too.Very impressive.A lot of city walls around the world are reduced to rubble.This set of walls is a really impressive gem.The old city is well worth a visit.I travelled from Paphos on the other side of the island to visit the city.Absolutely no regrets.
