Othello Tower Castle - Famagusta




The most famous part of the walls surrounding the city of Famagusta has to be the Citadel, commonly referred to as Othello's Castle. In the Shakespeare play, Othello the Moor was a Venetian commander, sent by his masters to Cyprus, where "The fortitude of the place is well known to you." From Act II onwards, the play is simply set in 'A seaport in Cyprus' and also in 'A hall in the castle'.
