Liberty Monument, Nicosia

3.5
The Liberty Monument (Greek: Μνημείο Ελευθερίας, "Mnēmeío Eleftherías" or "Eleftheria Monument") is a monument in the city of Nicosia in Cyprus.

The Liberty Monument was erected in 1973 to honor the anti-British EOKA fighters of the Cyprus Emergency of 1955–1959. It is located at the Podocattaro Bastion of the Venetian walls.
The large monument contains several statues. Atop the structure, a statue representing liberty watches over two heroic EOKA fighters pulling chains to open a prison gate, allowing Greek Cypriot prisoners, peasants, and clergy (represented by various statues) to escape British rule.

  • Nice monument that symbolizes the long struggle of Cypriot people for freedom. It is the best place to start your visit of walled town as it is placed at Podocatoro bastion.  more »
  • No much of an inscription - one has to know about the history of the island, then the monument makes sense.  more »
