Famagusta was first a formidable wall that was built in the 16C by the Venetians: almost 4km in circumference, with a moat in front of it and 14 bastions. The structure is still impressive today, but it did not prevent the Turks from taking the stronghold in 1570. During the interminable siege, the city was smashed to smithereens by a deluge of artillery. In the shadow of the massive former Gothic cathedral, which became a mosque, a small village settled among the ruins of churches and palaces.
