Worth a quick viewing but little to see really. A walk along the old city walls nearby is probably more interesting.

We stumbled across this monument by coincidence while walking around the city, but it made quite an impression on us. It clearly shows some of the feelings that excited around the fight for independence from Britain, and the bullet holes in the monument say a lot about Cypriot history.

Stumbled across this on a walk back to the hotel. It's worth a few minutes stop off if you're in the nearby area, but I wouldn't make a dedicated trip to see it, unless you've a particular interest in the struggle or monuments such as this.

This is art that comes alive once you are amongst the statues. Even though it symbolizes the Cypriots' freedom from the British, it is quite symbolic for any kind of freedom. Easy access, free and worth visiting

Went to the Byzantine museum and on the way back stopped and saw the statue. It's okay to visit it if one has plenty of time and nothing to do. One can also walk to the Famagusta Gate which is close by.

This is just a small monument in the middle of nowhere. So I would not plan this... sorry to say I did some reading of others and can not understand why a tourist has to travel there...

It's impressive, not because of it's size, but due to the ideas it symbolises the struggle for freedom of every member of society. It's even more amazing at night.
