Welcome to Othello's site about the town of Famagusta

Hello and welcome

This site is about the town of Famagusta on the East coast of the Republic of Cyprus.

A thriving medieval harbour city in the Eastern Mediterranean, a long siege, rapid economic development and an abrupt end in 1974 are the main landmarks in the town's history through time.

At present, the people of Famagusta continue living in exile while waiting for their long overdue return.

Till then,

Othellos
Famagusta

The town's Greek Cypriot population has been kept away by force since 1974




Ancient Salamis

One of the most important cities of the ancient Greek world in the eastern Mediterranean. Salamis is located in the occupied part of Cyprus about 5 km north of Famagusta
