"The Venetian Walls" Venetian Walls Tip by gigina
Venetian Walls, Nicosia: 9 reviews and 10 photos
Nicosia's Venetian fortifications are its most obvious feature and a good place to start your wanderings. Of the 11 bastions, named after Venetian personalities, 5 fall into the Greek zone and 5 now, confusingly renamed, into the Turkish zone. The Flatro bastion, in the no-man's land between the zones, is under UN Control. 3 surviving gates, called Pafos, Kyrenia and Famagusta after the towns which they face, breach the walls roughly 120 degrees apart.
