The Famagusta Gate, a beautiful Venetian structure, was once the eastern entrance to Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus.
In 1981, the Nicosia Municipality restored the gate and repurposed it as the Nicosia Municipal Multicultural Centre. The impressive cobblestoned entrance opens into a large vaulted passage with two adjacent rooms, and an external room opens onto the moat that surrounds the walls. Today it is a popular venue for various different cultural exhibitions.
