When in Cyprus, don't miss going to 'The Castle'.

This is the only medieval place remaining in the town although it was originally a Byzantine castle. In the small chapel, Richard I married Berengaria and made her Queen of England in 1191. Later, it was strengthened by the Knights Templar. The original Templars Fort underwent reconstruction after it was destroyed by the Genoese in 1370 and its defensive attributes were boosted. Subsequently, it was neglected until 1568 when the Venetians, facing the real threat from the Turks, reinforced it with most of the features you see now. It was then rebuilt and strengthened by the Turks who used it as a garrison and prison. During the 2md World War it became headquarters of the British army. Since 1950 it has been renovated and strengthened and is now open to visitors. It consists of a great hall, prison cells and other smaller rooms.
