Othello Castle
One of our favorite castles in Europe is the “Othello Castle” located in Famagusta on the Northern occupied part of Cyprus.

We love Famagusta generally because this is where Stefan’s family all originate from. So coming here is always an important discovery trip for Stefan.

We particularly love the Othello Castle because it is located in the gorgeous Famagusta Old town, which is rich with history dating back to the Romans.

Othello Castle was built in the 14th century by the Lusignans to protect the port against possible enemy attacks. It was also used as the main entrance to the walled town of Famagusta.

It was later sold to the Republic of Venice who added the iconic relief of the Lion of St Mark. It was during this period when it got its name and has been romanticized. Shakespeare’s play “Othello” was written in around 1603 and was believed to be set here.
