Discovering North Cyprus 5/12/2016, Kyrenia Castle


By Engin Dervişağa…….

I am delighted together with my colleague Qossay Eleyan to bring you an interesting report on “Discovering North Cyprus” about the Kyrenia Castle which is at the east end of the old harbour in Kyrenia and this 16th-century castle built by the Venetians over a previous Crusader fortification. Within its walls lies a twelfth-century chapel and the famous Shipwreck Museum and much more for visitors to admire.

The moat on the landward side of the castle was full of water prior to the 14th Century AD and served as a harbour to the castle. The entrance to the Castle is by a bridge spanning the moat. Features in the castle is a vaulted corridor that leads to the entrance of the Lusignan castle and nearby is the tomb of Ottoman Admiral Sadik Pasha who conquered Kyrenia in 1570 and from here the corridor leads through to the large internal area of the castle.
