‘Kyrenia/Girne - Kyrenia Castle’


At my previous post (Harbour in Kyrenia/Girne) I mentioned already that the most famous sight in the harbour is the Kyrenia castle.

This castle dates back to the Byzantine time and has also served the Crusaders, the Venetians, the Ottomans and the British.

The Venetians built very huge round towers at its corners to strenghten it, which you can see on this picture.
