An amazing monument with a great history and absolutely fantastic details. Very well kept and not too far from the city center where if you go exploring you'll find many more :D

The monument was erected in 1973 to commemorate the anti-british struggle during 1955-59, leading up to Independence in 1960. The symbolism of a gate opening to let prisoners out is quite clear. However, some on-site interpretation in English and other languages would have been helpful.

Important for local history although leaving out the Turkish Cypriots in the monument is rather unfair. Still it is good to remember how hard it was to gain independence,

We weren't quite sure what type of Liberty this was celebrating but its impressive in its own way. Worth a look.

Another erection, that could have been treated with some more attitude, than just dropped between the walls. I even didn't see a sighn what it reffers to.

Monument is quite nice to see but church was more impressive to see even though small. Depiction of the gate is quite good. Lots of flies around
