Great Inn (Büyük Han)

Shopping Point in Nicosia & Kyrenia, North Cyprus

Büyük Han or Great Inn is the largest caravansarai on the island of Cyprus and is considered to be one of the finest buildings on the island. 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.
