Nicosia has a plethora of really lovely old buildings and many from the colonial times very interesting to view them as most are in very good condition including the law courts which are still y sed today as well as the more modern building nearby

Typical British colonial architecture. Lots of people coming and going. It is nice to sit in the square opposite and do some people watching with a glass of Turkish tea.

We walked past this landmark several times when visiting the north of Nicosia. The buildings were used as public offices in Ataturk Square (Sarayonu) were built in 1901, on the site of the last Lusignan Palace, during the British Colonial period.
