Discover the old Nicosia and its walls 
Guided walking tour.
Lefkosia, the only divided capital in the world, dates back to the Bronze Age. In antiquity and in early Christian times it was known as Ledra. It has been the capital of Cyprus since the Late Byzantine period (11th century). The Lusignans transformed it into a splendid city, with royal palaces and churches. The city centre, the old “Chora”, surrounded by 16th century Venetian Walls, with museums, old churches and medieval buildings, maintains the leisurely atmosphere of yesteryear.
