I am delighted together with my colleague Qossay Eleyan to bring you an interesting report on “Discovering North Cyprus” about the Lapidary Museum which is found just south of Haydar Pasha mosque in Lefkosa.
The museum is housed in a 15th Century house of an almost unique style in Cyprus The first floor has square windows, which have balconies supported on carved corbels, each decorated with a device. This house contains medieval and Gothic fragments from vanished palaces and churches of Nicosia.
The great window in the north wall is from the Lusignan royal palace that stood in Sarayonu Square, until 1904. This arched window is all that remains of the royal palace. Here too is preserved the tomb of Adam of Antioch, Marshall of Cyprus, which was found when the Church of Pallouriotissa was being rebuilt.
This show will be transmitted on BRT2 on Monday 20th November at 19.00 pm and repeated on Thursday 23rd November at 19.50 pm. This programme was edited by Kut Adali
