  • Fairly well maintained and appears to be a place of interest to tourists and also Locals. useful for anyone with an interest in the History of Cyprus. Further research will be necessary  more »
  • It is a castle which is called Othello, is not rebuilt, you can see that in his time would be as construction, rather it is a fortress, is interesting, its walls and moats.

  • Othello's Tower... Yes... THE Othello... Not a lot of people know this, but Shakespeare's Othello is based on a historical figure. This is his castle. Essentially, Othello's Tower is Famagusta's Citadel, its last line of defense in case the city is overrun. It's an expansive fortification that requires an entire afternoon's attention if you want to see it properly. You'll find plenty of photo opportunities and historical factoids. My only criticism of this place is that it's been stripped of any an all furnishings, so what you're touring is basically an empty castle. Nevertheless, it well worth seeing if you're in town. Pro-Tip: The central courtyard is converted into an outdoor theater for part of the summer. Unsurprisingly enough, you can see Othello on-stags in Othello's Castle, if you get your visiting dates right. Dates change from year to year, so be sure to check out the local tourist information websites ahead of time.
