Pafos Gate Is One Of 3 Original Entrances To The Walled City Of Nicosia

Pafos Gate Nicosia

Also called Porta San Domenico by the Venetians, Pafos gate is the western gate of the Venetian walls. The gate was a former weapons warehouse for the Ottoman Turks. The British later turned it into a police headquarters. It is now a simple roadway for traffic through the city wall.

The other 2 are Famagusta Gate and Kyrenia Gate which is the least maintained of the 3 entrances as it sits in the Turkish side of the city.
