The capital city of Cyprus, remains the last divided capital in the world due to the Turkish occupation.
The intriguing and only divided capital city in the world is a recommended day trip to explore its fascinating history. 45 minutes drive from the villa.
Nicosia (Lefkosia) is Cyprus' capital. It combines both old and new in a busy modern commercial and business center, along with a centuries-old culture. The center of the city is its old quarter surrounded by a Venetian sandstone fortress wall with a moat and heart-shaped bastions. Mosques and palm trees give an oriental atmosphere to the old city. Wander round narrow streets with overhanging balconies and the beautifully restored pedestrian precinct with craft shops, cafes and taverns. Make sure to stop off at St John’s cathedral with its frescoes and the museum of Byzantine icons. In the evening catch a concert in the moat or an exhibition at the Famagusta Gate, one of the three original entrances into the old city, which has now been restored and is used as a cultural center. The new town spreads beyond the walls with a modern center of high-rise buildings, office blocks, shops, malls and pavement cafes, expanding into suburban residential areas. Of the city’s main sights, the Cyprus Museum houses the best collection of archaeological artifacts on the island, including a first century AD Roman statuette of Aphrodite of Soli and the original mosaic of Leda and the Swan.
