Historically speaking, Famagusta was once one of the largest cities on Cyprus during medieval times with impressive stone fortifications built by the Lusignan Kings during their rule between 1192-1489 AD. It has since served as an important port city connecting both sides of Europe and Asia until 1974 when it was divided by Turkish troops following a war between Greece and Turkey.
