Attractions near the Holiday Inn
A small but mighty cathedral
St John’s Cathedral, located in Nicosia’s Old Town, is really small compared to the other cathedrals in Europe. However, upon entering the Cathedral and seeing the magnificent furnishings you immediately forget about its seemingly insignificant size. This 18th-Century structure is considered one of the most revered churches in Cyprus and still holds official ceremonies.
Inside, you can see numerous 18th-Century paintings on the Cathedral’s walls that depict specific religious moments and the discovery of Apostle Barnabas’ tomb. There is also a beautifully decorated ornate throne that can only be used by the Archbishop. You can visit with or without a tour guide.
Nicosia’s cultural hub
Nicosia’s Old Town has three well-known gates, but only the Famagusta Gate holds the honour of being the most popular. Built in the 16th Century, it was used predominantly by travellers entering and leaving the city, and now functions as one of Nicosia’s main exhibition areas.
The Famagusta Gate has three areas; the South hall, North hall and the central passageway, which often hold various cultural and art exhibitions from Cyprus and international sources. While visiting, you might be able to see a lecture, film or conference in the North hall; an art gallery in the South hall; or a theatrical performance in the central passageway.
