An amazing monument with a great history and absolutely fantastic details.
Very well kept and not too far from the city center where if you go exploring you'll find many more :D

The monument was erected in 1973 to commemorate the anti-british struggle during 1955-59, leading up to Independence in 1960. The symbolism of a gate opening to let prisoners out is quite clear. However, some on-site interpretation in English and other languages would have been helpful.

Important for local history although leaving out the Turkish Cypriots in the monument is rather unfair. Still it is good to remember how hard it was to gain independence,

We weren't quite sure what type of Liberty this was celebrating but its impressive in its own way. Worth a look.

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.
