Famagusta gate is an interesting point where to stop. We made quick stop just to take a look at this amazing historical object in the town of the city

We entered Nicosia old town through this gate. It’s nice and impressive enough, but above all, impossible to miss if arriving with own transport. Also, there was plenty of free side roads parking close to the gate. We left the car there and explored Nicosia...More

A little out of the way. However, walking from city did take me past various other sites such as Statue of Liberty, St Johns Cathedral, other walls. Famagusta Gate is definitely worth a visit if you're interested in historic city landmarks.

It is interesting how our predecessors have thought of placing such gates to control the crowds coming in Nicosia. The nearby restaurant is a must visit place as well.

The photo here on Tripadvisor captures the whole Famagusta Gate experience. It's a gate (locked when I was there) in wall.

We went out of our way to see this gate as we expected it to be something worth seeing. Sadly even though the sign said it was open, it wasn't. A guard/staff member was inside we could see her sat down playing on her phone....More

Although it is located in the north, you would think it is the gate of the south and north, considering the political reality. The gate itself is beautiful.
