Stop At: Othello Castle, Famagusta Cyprus

Othello's tower was originally built as a moated citadel in order to protect Famagusta's harbour, and was originally the main entrance to the town. When the Venetians arrived, they greatly strengthened the town's defences, incorporating the citadel into the main town walls.

The tower was remodelled by the Venetian Captain Nicolo Foscareno in 1492. Above the main entrance, there is a sculpture of the winged lion of St Mark, the patron saint of Venice, along with an inscription crediting Nicoli Foscareno with the renovation.

Stop At: St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum, Salamis-Famagusta Road, Famagusta Cyprus

St. Barnabas Church, near Famagusta, North Cyprus
An island of mixed religious beliefs…

St. Barnabas Monastery near Famagusta is dedicated to the patron saint of Cyprus, St. Barnabas. The church is now an icon museum housing a stunning collection of Cypriot artefacts dating back as far as the 7th Century BC which are kept in the monks' old cells.

Over the years, Cyprus has had various rulers with different religious beliefs, from Muslim to Christian and Pagan. Cultures have intermingled and crossed and the end result is an island with mixed religions, where churches and mosques sit side by side. Cultures which worshipped the moon and stars, gave way to those that worshipped pagan idols. These, in turn, were superseded by faiths that believed in God and by the time the Romans gained power over the island, there was a strong following of Judaism.

Duration: 45 minutes
