This is a monument erected near the Famagusta gate. Due to the fact that it is newer, after the city has been split, you have something to take pictures of, unlike older monuments in the area.

It is a short distance from several museums on the Greek side of Nicosia, but pretty far away from any crossing point.

Easy ride if you have a car as you can park it at the Famagusta gate.

It represents the liberation of greek cypriots from the british oppressors.

Another erection, that could have been treated with some more attitude, than just dropped between the walls. I even didn't see a sighn what it reffers to.

This statue is above the Venetian Walls of Nicosia. It symbols the liberation of Cypriot people through out the centuries, but mainly from the Great Britain in 1960. But in 1974 Turkey invade Cyprus killing in cold blood, plunder, raping and forcing 200,000 people live their homes and up to today, never go back. So this statues is more than a hope that one we are liberate by the Turks.

This monument is a tribute to the EOKA organisation than for for the independence of Cyprus and dedicated to every person that was involved in the EOKA fight. The statues are truly stunning to look at as a whole and the sole polished statue in the centre gives the monument a particularly poignant expression.

Monument is quite nice to see but church was more impressive to see even though small.
Depiction of the gate is quite good. Lots of flies around
