There is a city in eastern Cyprus named Famagusta which has the deepest harbor on the island, which is located in this city. As a result, this is where many of the cruise ships dock when visiting Cyprus. As a result, Famagusta’s ancient city walls, sandy beaches, and archaeological monuments attract a large number of tourists every year.
The city is also a popular spot for diving, with its clear waters and vibrant sea life. The city is a melting pot of different cultures, with influences from the Ottoman, Byzantine, and Venetian Empires.
Two of the most iconic landmarks that still remain in Famagusta include the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque and the St. Barnabas Monastery. Located in the south of Famagusta, Varosha was once the center of the tourist trade in the area, but was abandoned after the Turkish invasion of the area.
