Took a friend that was visiting cyprus the other day...!! Nicosia is so unique with its walls going round it and this is the best spot to apprecitate the layout of the old town! Also i hate going to the occupied area but from here one can appreciate this aspect clearly as well. Really worth visiting! There are helpful annotations and a good audio as well. Birds eye view of 360 degrees and useful info about the history of the town!!!!
A must visit!!
The fee is TOO small (Eur2,00 or something!!!)
It is situated in the pedestrian zone of the old town which is a must visit anyway!!! So if you are in the area DO GO UP!!!

I am so glad we were told about this view point. There we were searching round for the green line and look out over the dividing wall only to find out you can now access over into the Turkish occupied side. This wasn't possible the last time I visited Nicosia so the information that you get when visiting here was certainly worth it for me to find out why and what had changed. There are computerized screens that are extremely informative and the views of all over Nicosia are amazing. I just wish we had bought our passports along so we could have gone over to the Turkish occupied side and explored further. A must visit if you are coming into Nicosia.

its a must if your visiting nicosia plenty to see from this viewpoint and photograph whilst viewing the locals wandering the streets etc
binoculars are provided for the more distant views
20% off in the cafe on the admission price
so worth spending a good half a hour in the viewpoint area
