Kyrenia Castle is one of the most famous sites in North Cyprus. You can easily find your way around but also have the choice of booking a half-day tour from our local representatives.
The Castle holds many unrevealed secrets from the past…
Kyrenia Castle dominates the entrance to Kyrenia’s picturesque harbour which acts as a standing guard over the port. The imposing castle is well worth a visit during your holiday.
First built in Roman times, Kyrenia Castle was later fortified by the Byzantines and enlarged by the Lusignans. Most of the castle building which can be seen today, however, dates back to the 1480s when Cyprus was under Venetian rule. Not only is Kyrenia Castle impressive but it also houses the fascinating shipwreck museum, displaying the remains of the world’s oldest shipwreck, which dates back to 300 BC with its cargo, which was found just off the coast of Kyrenia in 1965.
Kyrenia Castle also has many interesting displays showing the history of Cyprus.
Kyrenia is the most popular holiday resort in North Cyprus. Cyprus Premier offers a wide choice of hotels within walking distance of Kyrenia harbour and the impressive Kyrenia Castle.
