The time in North Cyprus is

St Anna Church,

Famagusta, North Cyprus

St Anna church, Famagusta
St Anna Church

St Anna church was built in the 14 century, and is thought to have been part of a monastery. It is single-aisled with two bays, and Gothic features resembling those of southern France

The walls are supported by external buttresses, between which can be seen tall windows, a typically Gothic feature. The apse is polygonal with buttresses.

Originally the facade supported a belfry, but that has disappeared.

The church can be found close to the north west corner of Famagusta and is marked on some maps as being inside a restricted military area. This is not correct, and has not been for some time, although the barbed wire and "no photography" signs are still in place. The area, however, has been taken over by a school, so access is still restricted to a certain extent.
