Famagusta
/ˌfæməˈɡʊstə, ˌfɑː-/ (Greek: Αμμόχωστος locally [aˈmːoxostos]; Turkish: Mağusa [mɑˈɰusɑ], or Gazimağusa [gɑːzimɑˈɰusɑ]) is a city on the east coast of Cyprus. It is located east of Nicosia and possesses the deepest harbour of the island. During the medieval period (especially under the maritime republics of Genoa and Venice), Famagusta
Famagusta
was the island's most important port city and a gateway to trade with the ports of the Levant, from where the Silk Road
Silk Road
merchants carried their goods to Western Europe. The old walled city and parts of the modern town presently fall within the de facto Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
Cyprus
in Gazimağusa District, of which it is the capital. It is also notable as the birthplace of the eponymous hero of the Renaissance proto-novel Fortunatus.

Name[edit] In antiquity, the town was known as Arsinoe[2] (Ancient Greek: Ἀρσινόη), after Arsinoe II of Egypt, and was mentioned by that name by Strabo. In Greek it is called Ammochostos (Αμμόχωστος), meaning "hidden in [the] sand". This name developed into Famagusta
Famagusta
(originally Famagouste in French and Famagosta in Italian), used in Western European languages, and to its Turkish name, Mağusa. In Turkish, the city is also called Gazimağusa; Gazi
Gazi
means veteran in Turkish, and the city has been officially awarded with the title after 1974 (compare Gaziantep). The old town is nicknamed "the city of 365 churches" owing to a legend that at its peak, Famagusta
Famagusta
boasted one church for each day of the year. History[edit] The city was founded around 274 BC, after the serious damage to Salamis by an earthquake, by Ptolemy II Philadelphus
Ptolemy II Philadelphus
and named "Arsinoe" after his sister.[3] Arsinoe was described as a "fishing town" by Strabo
Strabo
in his Geographica
Geographica
in the first century BC. It remained a small fishing village for a long time.[4] Later, as a result of the gradual evacuation of Salamis due to the Arab invasion led by Muawiyah I, it developed into a small port. Medieval Famagusta[edit]

Church of Sts. Peter and Paul (1359) was converted into a mosque in 1571 and renamed as the Sinan Pasha Mosque.

The turning point for Famagusta
Famagusta
was 1192 with the onset of Lusignan rule. It was during this period that Famagusta
Famagusta
developed as a fully-fledged town. It increased in importance to the Eastern Mediterranean due to its natural harbour and the walls that protected its inner town. Its population began to increase. This development accelerated in the 13th century as the town became a centre of commerce for both the East and West. An influx of Christian refugees fleeing the downfall of Acre
Acre
(1291) in Palestine transformed it from a tiny village into one of the richest cities in Christendom. In 1372 the port was seized by Genoa and in 1489 by Venice. This commercial activity turned Famagusta
Famagusta
into a place where merchants and ship owners led lives of luxury. The belief that people's wealth could be measured by the churches they built inspired these merchants to have churches built in varying styles. These churches, which still exist, were the reason Famagusta
Famagusta
came to be known as "the district of churches". The development of the town focused on the social lives of the wealthy people and was centred upon the Lusignan
Lusignan
palace, the Cathedral, the Square and the harbour.

Further information: Marco Antonio Bragadin In 1570–1571, Famagusta
Famagusta
was the last stronghold in Venetian Cyprus to hold out against the Turks under Mustafa Pasha. It resisted a siege of thirteen months and a terrible bombardment, until at last the garrison surrendered. The Ottoman forces had lost 50,000 men, including Mustafa Pasha's son. Although the surrender terms had stipulated that the Venetian forces be allowed to return home, the Venetian commander, Marco Antonio Bragadin, was flayed alive, his lieutenant Tiepolo was hanged, and many other Christians were killed.[5]

With the advent of the Ottoman rule, Latins lost their privileged status in Famagusta
Famagusta
and were expelled from the city. Greek Cypriots were at first allowed to own and buy property in the city, but were banished from the walled city in 1573-74 and had to settle outside in the area that later developed into Varosha. Turkish families from Anatolia were resettled in the walled city but could not fill the buildings that previously hosted a population of 10,000.[6] This caused a drastic decrease in the population of Famagusta. Merchants from Famagusta, who mostly consisted of Latins that had been expelled, resettled in Larnaca
Larnaca
and as Larnaca
Larnaca
flourished, Famagusta
Famagusta
lost its importance as a trade centre.[7] Over time, Varosha developed into a prosperous agricultural town thanks to its location away from the marshes, whilst the walled city remained dilapidated.[6] In the walled city, some buildings were repurposed to serve the interests of the Muslim population: the Cathedral of St. Nicholas was converted to a mosque (now known as Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque), a bazaar was developed, public baths, fountains and a theological school were built to accommodate the inhabitants' needs. Dead end streets, an Ottoman urban characteristic, was imported to the city and a communal spirit developed in which a small number of two-storey houses inhabited by the small upper class co-existed with the widespread one-storey houses.[8] British rule[edit] With the British takeover, Famagusta
Famagusta
regained its significance as a port and an economic centre and its development was specifically targeted in British plans. As soon as the British took over the island, a Famagusta
Famagusta
Development Act was passed that aimed at the reconstruction and redevelopment of the city's streets and dilapidated buildings as well as better hygiene. The port was developed and expanded between 1903 and 1906 and Cyprus
Cyprus
Government Railway, with its terminus in Famagusta, started construction in 1904. Whilst Larnaca continued to be used as the main port of the island for some time, after Famagusta's use as a military base in World War I
World War I
trade significantly shifted to Famagusta.[9] The city outside the walls grew at an accelerated rate, with development being centred around Varosha.[8] Varosha became the administrative centre as the British moved their headquarters and residences there and tourism grew significantly in the last years of the British rule. Pottery and production of citrus and potatoes also significantly grew in the city outside the walls, whilst agriculture within the walled city declined to non-existence.[9] New residential areas were built to accommodate the increasing population towards the end of the British rule,[8] and by 1960, Famagusta
Famagusta
was a modern colonial port city[10] extending far beyond Varosha and the walled city.[9] The British period also saw a significant demographic shift in the city. In 1881, Christians constituted 60% of the city's population whilst Muslims were at 40%. By 1960, Turkish Cypriot
Turkish Cypriot
population had dropped to 17.5% of the overall population, whilst the Greek Cypriot population had risen to 70%.[11] The city was also the site for one of the British internment camps for nearly 50,000 Jewish survivors of the Holocaust
Holocaust
trying to emigrate to Palestine.[10] From independence to the Turkish invasion[edit] From independence in 1960 to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus
Cyprus
of 1974, Famagusta
Famagusta
developed toward the south west of Varosha as a tourist centre. In the late 1960s Famagusta
Famagusta
became a well-known entertainment and tourist centre. The contribution of Famagusta
Famagusta
to the country's economic activity by 1974 far exceeded its proportional dimensions within the country. It possessed over 50% of the total hotel accommodation of Cyprus. Whilst its population was only about 7% of the total of the country, Famagusta
Famagusta
by 1974 accounted for over 10% of the total industrial employment and production of Cyprus, concentrating mainly on light industry compatible with its activity as a tourist resort and turning out high-quality products ranging from food, beverages and tobacco to clothing, footwear, plastics, light machinery and transport equipment. It contributed 19.3% of the business units and employed 21.3% of the total number of persons engaged in commerce on the island. It acted as the main tourist destination of Cyprus, hosting 31.5% of the hotels and 45% of Cyprus' total bed capacity.[12] Varosha acted as the main touristic and business quarters. In this period, the urbanisation of Famagusta
Famagusta
slowed down and the development of the rural areas accelerated. Therefore, economic growth was shared between the city of Famagusta
Famagusta
and the district, which had a balanced agricultural economy, with citrus, potatoes, tobacco and wheat as main products. Famagusta
Famagusta
maintained good communications with this hinterland. The city's port remained the island's main seaport and in 1961, it was expanded to double its capacity in order to accommodate the growing volume of exports and imports. The port handled 42.7% of Cypriot exports, 48.6% of imports and 49% of passenger traffic.[13] There has not been an official census since 1960 but the population of the town in 1974 was estimated to be around 39,000[14] not counting about 12,000–15,000 persons commuting daily from the surrounding villages and suburbs to work in Famagusta. The number of people staying the city would swell to about 90,000–100,000 during the peak summer tourist period, with the influx of tourists from numerous European countries, mainly Britain, France, Germany
Germany
and the Scandinavian countries. The majority of the city population were Greek Cypriots (26,500), with 8,500 Turkish Cypriots and 4,000 people from other ethnic groups.[14] From the Turkish invasion to the present[edit] During the second phase of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus
Cyprus
on 14 August 1974 the Mesaoria
Mesaoria
plain was overrun by Turkish tanks and Famagusta
Famagusta
was bombed by Turkish aircraft. It took two days for the Turkish Army
Turkish Army
to occupy the city, prior to which Famagusta's entire Greek Cypriot population had fled into surrounding fields. Most of these Greek Cypriots believed that once the initial violence calmed down they would be allowed to return.[citation needed] As a result of the Turkish airstrikes dozens of civilians died, including tourists.[15] Unlike other parts of the Turkish-controlled areas of Cyprus, the Varosha suburb of Famagusta
Famagusta
was fenced off by the Turkish Army immediately after being captured and remains fenced off today. The Greek Cypriots who had fled from Varosha were not allowed to return, and journalists are banned. The city has been frozen in time, with houses, department stores and hotels empty and looted, even to the tiles on bathroom walls. Cityscape[edit]

Famagusta's historic city centre is surrounded by the fortifications of Famagusta, which have a roughly rectangular shape, built mainly by the Venetians in the 15th and 16th centuries, though some sections of the walls have been dated earlier times, as far as 1211.[16] Some important landmarks and visitor attractions in the old city are:[17][18][19][20]

In an October 2010 report titled Saving Our Vanishing Heritage, Global Heritage Fund listed Famagusta, a "maritime ancient city of crusader kings", among the 12 sites most "On the Verge" of irreparable loss and destruction, citing insufficient management and development pressures.[21] Economy[edit] See also: Port of Famagusta

The port of Famagusta

Famagusta
Famagusta
is an important commercial hub of Northern Cyprus. The main economic activities in the city are tourism, education, construction and industrial production. It has a 115-acre free port, which is the most important seaport of Northern Cyprus
Cyprus
for travel and commerce.[22][23] The port is an important source of income and employment for the city, though its volume of trade is restricted by the embargo against Northern Cyprus. Its historical sites, including the walled city, Salamis, the Othello Castle
Othello Castle
and the St Barnabas Church, as well as the sandy beaches surrounding it make it a tourist attraction; efforts are also underway to make the city more attractive for international congresses. The Eastern Mediterranean University
Eastern Mediterranean University
is also an important employer and supplies significant income and activity, as well as opportunities for the construction sector. The university also raises a qualified workforce that stimulates the city's industry and makes communications industry viable. The city has two industrial zones: the Large Industrial Zone and the Little Industrial Zone. The city is also home to a fishing port, but inadequate infrastructure of the port restricts the growth of this sector.[22] The industry in the city has traditionally been concentrated on processing agricultural products.[24] Historically, the port was the primary source of income and employment for the city, especially right after 1974. However, it gradually lost some of its importance is the economy as the share of its employees in the population of Famagusta
Famagusta
diminished due to various reasons.[25] However, it still is the primary port for commerce in Northern Cyprus, with more than half of ships that came to Northern Cyprus
Cyprus
in 2013 coming to Famagusta. It is the second most popular seaport for passengers, after Kyrenia, with around 20,000 passengers using the port in 2013.[26] Politics[edit] The mayor-in-exile of Famagusta
Famagusta
is Alexis Galanos. İsmail Arter heads the Turkish Cypriot
Turkish Cypriot
municipal administration of Famagusta, which remains legal as a communal-based body under the constitutional system of the Republic of Cyprus.[27] Since 1974, Greek Cypriots submitted a number of proposals within the context of bicommunal discussions for the return of Varosha to UN administration, allowing the return of its lawful inhabitants, requesting also the opening of Famagusta
Famagusta
harbour for use by both communities. Varosha would have been returned under Greek Cypriot
Greek Cypriot
control as part of the 2004 Annan Plan

if the plan had been accepted by the Greek Cypriot

voters.[28] Culture[edit]

The walled city of Famagusta
Famagusta
contains many unique buildings. Famagusta has a walled city popular with tourists.[29] Every year, the International Famagusta
Famagusta
Art and Culture Festival is organized in Famagusta. Concerts, dance shows and theater plays take place during the festival.[30] A growth in tourism and the city's university have fueled[31] the development of Famagusta's vibrant[32] nightlife. Nightlife in the city is especially active on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights and in the hotter months of the year, starting from April. Larger hotels in the city have casinos that cater to their customers.[33] Salamis Road is an area of Famagusta
Famagusta
where bars frequented by students and locals are concentrated and is very vibrant, especially in the summer.[34] Famagusta's Othello Castle
Othello Castle
is the setting for William Shakespeare's play Othello.[35] The city is also the setting for Victoria Hislop's 2015 novel The Sunrise,[36] and Michael Paraskos's 2016 novel In Search of Sixpence.[37] Sports[edit] Famagusta
