Byzantine Museum and Art Galleries

The Byzantine Museum in Lefkosia (Nicosia) within the walls contains the richest and most representative collection of Byzantine art on the island.

About 230 icons dating from the 9th to the 19th centuries, as well as other typical examples of the Byzantine art of Cyprus, such as sacred vessels, vestments and books, are on display.

The collection includes many icons dating from the 12th century when iconography was at its height. Among the star attractions are the famous 6th century mosaics torn from the church of Kanakaria in the occupied area, sold abroad and later repatriated.
