On the Road: Samanbahçe, the Highlight of Lefkosa

The historical quarter of Samanbahçe is the highlight of Lefkosa (as Nicosia is called on the Turkish community side). On the day I went to Lefkosa, I was roaming around the old town and was very lucky to find Samanbahçe, as it is located on the backs of one of the main streets.

I found it thanks to its special architecture. In fact, Samanbahçe consists of more than 70 welcoming houses built on natural stone foundations and has a water fountain in the middle.

This unique area is full of cats and flowers. Plus, locals are very friendly and many of them have its doors open. Besides, Samanbahçe is a nice place to appreciate some local street art.

Samanbahçe is a must place to visit and, definitely, one of my reccommendations if you visit Lefkosa.

Over the last years I’ve managed and developed this blog as a meeting point to connect travelers and bloggers, writers and photographers, you and me. Feel free to support PedroL: you can donate $1 dollar ~ 0.85€; purchase one of my ebooks; or subscribe premium that will give you access to more than 50 curated articles during one year. Either way you chose will help me to keep this project, thanks!
