When Famagusta was surrounded with walls there were 2 Gates that were in use to enter the walled city. One was called Ravelin and the other one Sea Gate.These places are one of the tourist attractions nowadays.

Although no longer intact, the building was undergoing renovations but it is still a most impressive sight.

The oild sea gate can't really be missed when you visit Famagusta and although you can't go through the gate (it's all fenced off), you can climb the steps to the top and get some good views. You can look down into the old port which is now only a shadow of its former self - just one ferry ship... More

Worth a look and a climb up the steps for great views of the city, harbour and surrounding area. You can see the Venetian lions here.

An antique building on the shore of Famagusta . You reach it when going along the old walls . Interesting architecture and decorations. Recommended.

It would be hard to miss the sea gate on a visit to the old town of Famagusta - a walk down the pedestrian area, towards the sea takes you straight to it. Climb the stairs for views across the Mediterranean, over the docks (where the ferries land) and, in the other direction, over the town with its row of... More

Visiting this gate is free and it is quite close to the historical old town of Famagusta (just 4-5 minutes of walking). This gate itself is not a big deal but it is very suitable to take pictures of the old city. But note that the old town is to the west of this gate and if you go there... More
