Famagusta Gate

The Famagusta Gate is located in the city of Nicosia, within the Nicosia district of Cyprus.

The old city of Nicosia is surrounded by fortified medieval walls with three gates, including the Kyrenia Gate, Paphos Gate, and Famagusta Gate.  Originally, the Venetians referred to it as Porta Guiliana, in regards to Count Savorgnano, who designed the wall.





This recently restored, yet fairly well-preserved historic site now serves as a landmark in the city, as well as Nicosia's Cultural Center.

The Famagusta Gate is a quick, yet pleasant stop, while exploring the city of Nicosia.
