What an amazing building. From one angle you expect it to be a ruined cathedral; the entrance could be one of many cathedrals built throughout Europe, and then you see the minaret....inside it was so simple yet beautiful. It felt so serene; one of the most serene buildings I have ever been in.
Famagusta is worth visiting for this alone. The strange mixture of Christian and Muslim architecture is so typical of the contrasts and style of much of Cyprus,
Sitting outside having a coffee in the square overlooking the building the sights of other buildings all around was amazing. We got approached by a guy doing a PHd in architecture at the local university conducting a survey as to whether the area should be a World Heritage Site; no question about it, it should be.
We got there about 10am, and it was pleasantly quiet and tranquil; i suspect late rin the day it gets much noisier and busier
