Interesting and thought provoking statue and I admit to some ignorance of the history of Cyprus. But I have many misgivings as the Greek Cypriots seem to have a totally one sided view of history. Many countries in the British Empire managed to gain independence without resorting to killin British soldiers!

This is an easy sight and a must for tourists in Nicosia! It symbolizes the freedom from the British. Real life statues.

The monument is a bit further away from the centre of the main sites in south Nicosia, although it is easy to get to. Worth a visit if you are around the area, you also get a good view of the medieval walls near this site.

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.
