Impressive enough in their way, but much modified over the centuries. The gates are, I think, the best features.

The walls tell a history, not just walls. Imagine that Nicosia was so different at the time and these walls were protecting the inhabitants. Let your imagination take this journey.

The Venitian Walls wind around Nicosia like embracing arms. The Walls were pertection from medieval harm. It's magnificient architecture and strength allowed enterprise and safety in the city. Just imagine in the 1600's, living in such a protected nice place.

Sorry, someone once said if you seen on wall you've seen them all! Only saw a short section and they are impressive but greater Nicosia hides what would have been a great site from the outside.

The walls are in good shape, they are definitely worth visiting. They are spread throughout a larger area. The only thing that bothered us was the fact, that there are a lot of construction sites nearby.
