  • The famous writer is inspired from the history where an important figure of the time very jealous made locked up and tortured his wife for 3 years in the dungeons in order to make him confess an infidelity, who always say no, will take it "before God" for him to confess and will kill her when even because she refused to confess a fault she had not committed

  • There's not much information about.. Just for fun. An ordinary views of Cyprus. No matter the time, say navigate in the winter. Warm the whole place is empty. More comfortable

  • Entry fee €2.50. Interesting fortifications which are supposed to be the inspiration for Shakespeare's Othello. The ramparts can be walked in part and there are views over the port. On the ground floor are some artefacts and poster boards describing the collaborative efforts of Greek and Turkish Cypriots to conserve this monument. There is a public toilet on site.
  • Good very informative. Excellent value for money. Worth a visit.
  • Loved visiting this site, very nice view over whole Famagusta
  • Nice to visit and a near place in Famagusta
  • Inspired Shakespeare to write Othello but have to pay to get in and there's not much to see
