  Famagusta Gate
by easyoar

The Famagusta Gate is built into the side of one of the bastions of the Nicosia Walls. It is by far the best of the three remaining gates, both in original design and in its preservation.

The gate is basically a tunnel through the walls and has a wooden gate for an entrance. These days the gate has been renovated and is used as an art gallery and concert venue (although I have to admit the art I saw inside was a little basic...)

Be careful when you visit and step back to take a picture - there's a huge topless sunbather who I just couldn't quite get out of the frame...
