The Cathedral/Mosque of Famagusta (Image Reference: 20190411A-G5922)

On this day we had a full day excursion (12 hours) up to the “The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” also known as “Occupied Cyprus” depending on which side the of the border you are from. Our visit took us to a number of places around the city of Famagusta.

This is the Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, originally known as the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas. It was once a Christian cathedral which was captured and converted into a mosque. Architecturally it is interesting to see how many of the feature have been changed. All the statues have been removed and the stained glass windows now all clear glass. The pews have been removed and replaced with prayer mats.

Settings: 1/1250s, f/4, ISO 100. Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM @24 mm.
