Sea Gate was build just after 1300, during the construction of sea walls during Lusignan Period. It was reconstructed in 1496 by Venetians, as iti is indicated on its inscription panel. There is a rumor that Leonardo da Vinci had contributed to the design of the Sea Gate of Famagusta. It was the only gate to the port for 600 years from 1300 to 1903, except for the Arsenal Gate on the east end of the sea walls, that was used only for the entrance of galleys, now a gate for vehicle road. In 1903, 3 modern sea gates were opened on the west side of Sea Gate during British Reign.
