Geocache Description:


This cache is to take you into the heart of Nicosia, into the northern side. There is plenty to do here. The main attraction is the Great Inn.

PLEASE RETURN THE CACHE EXACTLY AS IT WAS FOUND.

Büyük Han (Great Inn) (Greek: Μεγάλο Πανδοχείο Megálo Pandocheío) is the largest caravansarai on the island of Cyprus and is considered to be one of the finest buildings on the island. Located in the capital of Cyprus, it was built by the Ottomans in 1572, the year after they had seized Cyprus from the Venetians. In the centre of the open courtyard is a mosque with a fountain for pre-prayer ablutions.

It became the first city prison under British administration. After spending most of the 1990s being restored, the inn has been revived as a thriving arts centre, consisting of several galleries and workshops. There are also several courtyard cafes and souvenir shops
