The home of Dervis Pasha, the publisher of Zaman the first Turkish Newspaper in Cyprus. The house has been given period furniture both upstairs and downstairs. It's a glmpse of how an important person lived in the 19th Century.

A museum that was once somebody's house. With furniture and even clothes in situ. Off in a quiet corner. Worth a look.

If possible go with a guide or someone who knows the local history of the Dragoman. A wonderful insight into a bygone age when the country was under Turkish control and how the local Aristocrats lived.

It is not by the Main Street, so it was a nice place to wander around. There are some nice exhibits of what a typical house would look like. There was no one there when I went, so I just wandered around by myself.

Interesting to see what a traditional house is like inside and imagine the lives of people in the past and now. Small exhibition. Place to sit and cool down.
