Beautiful and surreal divided Walled Nicosia
Culture and History tour in Nicosia
Tour Price : €100 Duration : 4 hours Languages: Greek, English, Spanish, German
The base trip (with the specific time and price) is offered to residents staying in Nicosia.
Walled Nicosia flaunts impressive specimens of Cyprus cultural heritage from before 1000 AD until today. In a relatively small area, one is in the presence of remarkable buildings from different eras, as successive rulers and conquerors added to the city’s richness. Within the state-of-the-art during the time of their construction, well preserved Venetian walls, one can meander for many hours, continuously discovering beautiful constructions.
Renovated quarters, busy markets and museums, Byzantine and Gothic churches and palaces, Ottoman mosques, khans, hamams, aquedacts and fountains, Victorian and neoclassical buildings are found intermixed throughout the historic city center. Both parts of Nicosia have beautiful buildings, including St. Sophia cathedral (converted to Selemiye mosque) and Buyuk Khan in the north and a number of Greek Orthodox churches in the south (Phaneromeni Church, Trypiotis, etc). The surreal experience of division and the presence of two communities from a different ethnic and religious background add more dimensions to the visitor’s experience.
We offer a half day walk that covers the most important cultural elements of Walled Nicosia, as well as a full-day walk (that can be divided into two different walks) that gives a more complete experience to the traveller.
