  • If you're already in Famagusta, the Othello Castle should be worth a visit. Too much to see, although not there, but the facility itself is impressive.

  • Port city of Famagusta is packed with attractions. Called the Othello Tower buildings seemed injury is quite severe. It was a building history of Northern Cyprus have suffered the invasion of other countries had a glimpse of.

  • 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.
