Not half as beautiful as the former building to the right of the cathedral. Also it had to be rebuilt as a result of the Turkish attack on the building. Nothing of great interest except for the two cars, one given by JF Kennedy.

This is an impressively large building being the official residence of the Archbishop of Cyprus. Built in neb-byzantine style, the building is beautiful to look at. Unfortunately the palace is not open to the public. So don't go out of your way to visit.

This is a modern palace of little interest since one cannot go inside. However, the replica of JFK's official car was nice to see since they don't make cars like that anymore.

We passed by the palace while looking for Famagusta Gate. Reminded me of San Marco square in Venice. It looks really good and nicely taken care of. Felt a bit too luxurious, though.

Yes it is an impressive building.However I am always sceptical about the head of any church having an imposing building..

This archbishops palace is a must to visit once you are in Nicosia. The structure is superb and the history is stunning
