The vibrant town and seaport of Famagusta or Gazimagusa to give it it’s local name,
is a major commercial centre that hums with life and has an exciting nightlife for
those seeking it. There is a modern part that boasts numerous shops, banks, schools,
medical facilities and so on, most requirements for modern living in fact. Then there
is the “Old Town”. To get into the old town one enters via stone archways through
the ancient city walls. Once inside you enter a vast maze of narrow roads that are
filled with many small shops, historical points of interest and some excellent restaurants
that will tempt you with the aromas of Turkish Cypriot dishes or well prepared European
cuisine if that is your preference.
The town is home to the Eastern Mediterranean University which has something like
15,000 students and lecturers on the campus. This provides a potential pool of possible
year round clients over and above the local population and holiday visitors.
Famagusta is one of the most important, greatly fortified ports on the shores of
the Mediterranean. Just to the north of Famagusta lie the fabulous ruins of Salamis.
This one great city is believed to have been founded in the 11th century BC and after
the influences of the many conquering nations, notably the Romans, the city was finally
abandoned in 648 AD following the combined catastrophes of earthquake and raids by
Arab pirates, when the population moved to Famagusta.
The spectacular ruins give a fascinating insight into long-lost civilizations and
include a magnificent amphitheatre, Roman baths, a gymnasium and royal tombs. The
mosaics are particularly beautiful. Ravaged by war and earthquakes, the old walled
town is now only partially inhabited, but it contains some of the finest examples
of medieval military architecture extant and the 14th-century Gothic-style Cathedral
of St. Nicholas, now a mosque.
In our opinion this business offers a real oppotunity to build upon an established
concern with great potential. Interested? Contact us to arrange a viewing and a cordial
