The European Art Gallery is found in the heart of old Nicosia, in the grounds of St. John Cathedral, adjacent to the Archbishop's Palace.
The Gallery of Archbishop Makarios III Foundation hosts a unique collection of representative works from Europe, Greece and Cyprus from the Renaissance to modern times.
The paintings are divided into three sections: (a) the European painting by Van Dyck, Rubens, Tintoretto, Delacroix and others (15th-19th) with religious and mythological topics (b) the collection of N. Dikaiou with paintings, engravings and maps on the Greek Revolution (18th-19th centuries) and (c) contemporary art with works by Cypriot and Greek artists.
