Although the Archbishop is an important figure in Cyprus who has religious and political clout, the palace is just another building which is out of bounds to the public. An interesting Cadillac and MBenz are shown off in a glass garage for those car enthusiasts.

Not open to the public! Looks interesting from the outside but unless you're passing I would not bother as you cannot get up close or inside. I would not class it anything better than ordinary. Next to the small but quaint St John's Cathedral &...More

Very nice building, seat of the archbishop. Building started still during the colonial period (1956). Only 5 years later it became ecclesiastical seat of the president (Macharios III). It cannot be visited. Next to it: St. Johns cathedral. A must.

Although not much to see, I recommend to take a look at the museum and the small church near by. Do not miss to visit the museum Agonos - which is next door to the Archibishop's palace.

Many parts of this have been blocked off to the public. You can still get a reasonable photo if you walk around.

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 wonderful looking building is different from many of the other sandstone style architectural buildings and is styled using many types of pastel colouring. Unfortunately it can only be seen from the outside as it's not open to the public. However, you have...More

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.
