Famagusta, also known as Gazimağusa, is a city on the east coast of Northern Cyprus. It’s known for its preserved 15th- and 16th-century Venetian walls, which are surrounded by a now waterless moat. There are sweeping views from the top of the moat. The Porta Del Mare gate has an iron door and a statue of a winged lion. The huge, honey-colored Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque was a Gothic cathedral and dates from the 14th century.

St. Nicholas Cathedral

The former Latin cathedral of St Nicholas, is one of the most impressive Frankish buildings still to survive in the Near East. The building of the church started around 1300, though it is thought to be on the remains of an earlier church. In style it resembles the Cathedral at Rheims, as well as St Sophia in Nicosia and Bellapais abbey.
