  • This C18th monastery building, in fine condition, now houses an icon museum, with archeological finds in the old monks' cells around the courtyard. It stands in a small clump of trees, just off the Fa...  more »
  • The little convent and Chapel are home to beautiful icons. Also the archaeological museum is a must. In the Chapel, you can visit the grave of the Apostle Barnabas. Definitely look up the history of this Apostle, a recommendable camera!

  • The Monestry of St. Banabus and the more modern icons we’ll worth a visit. The Graveyard where his body was buried is within the grounds around 100 metres away from the Monestry and Museum  more »

  • Very beautiful place with a very nice garden to have a tea in a peaceful atmosphere.
  • Nice place an old Greek orthodox church with a museum and tombs near by.
  • Obviously very historic. However, also a little neglected.
  • Nice and interesting, the icons are something extra, but the place is fast decoming commercial, witch is a pity.
  • Beautiful church with impressive collection of the icons.

Where to stay in Famagusta

Although Famagusta was once a bustling tourist destination, the city enjoys far fewer tourists today. The hotels that remain tend to be orientated towards luxury travel, offering on-site restaurants, swimming pools, and even a private section of beach. Vacation rentals are more plentiful and often a good value, particularly if you're traveling in a large group. However, they are frequently set in residential neighborhoods. To make the most of Famagusta's nightlife, opt for a place within walking distance of Salamis Road.
