This is the landfall light for Mağusa (Famagusta), the principal port on the east coast of Cyprus. During medieval times, the city was one of the richest in the Middle East. Venice, which controlled the city from 1489 to 1571, fortified it with high stone walls. The lighthouse is built on the walled city's southeast bastion (the Djamboulat Bastion), adjacent to the base of the harbor. ARLHS # CYP-009 (E 5892)
