  • Again a church converted to a mosque. Watch out: the coronation of the King of Jerusalem, noteworthy the rosette, Cactus leaf symbols. The towers collapsed during an earthquake. Inside: beautiful mosque.

  • The Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque really is stunning! If in Cyprus, in particular this area you must visit. A great piece of history! This beautiful building is set in a lovely area. It was nice to see to...  more »
  • The sultan has transformed the Church into a mosque but the height and its direction is not made for Muslim worship

  • It is an interesting experience to visit a former cathedral as a mosque. This place (I have a hard time calling it a mosque) has a very unique atmosphere. It is very different than other cathedrals with the same style because it has a distinct mediterrainian influence. In the women's prayer section you can see the "tomb" of a religious leader (bishop probably). Rather than restoring some windows, they chose to close them off. In one of my pictures you can see an original window, a renewed window and a closed off window side by side. It shows how conservation and restoration is done in different eras..
  • Most Historical Mosque and building in famagusta ( formerly Church. St. Sophia ) town. In use and perfect condition. ( former St. Nicholas Cathetral )
  • Lala Mustafa paşa Mosque or St. Nicholas Cathedral. It's open and on service. If you visit you can see the smooth conversion from a Cathedral to a Mosque
  • Charming gothic cathedral which was later rebuilt into a mosque. Best views from the outside, but nothing to see inside: empty white walls and carpets. Might be interesting to come in only for prayers.
  • Such an amazing place to visit!!!!! Amazing architecture and how well everything is preserved!
