Restoration of Othello Tower to start

THE maintenance and restoration of the Othello Tower in the occupied town of Famagusta will start within the next few days, Takis Hadjidemetriou, the Greek Cypriot Chairman of the Joint Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage said.

The project, he explained, is one of the biggest the committee  has undertaken, adding that it is funded from savings made from previous funding provided by the European Commission,

The company TESLA has ratified the tender for the restoration and as Hadjidemetriou has added, Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot members of Technical Committee agreed to be on site when work begins. This, he explained, could happen any day now.

Othello Tower is part of the walls of the old town of Famagusta. It lies on top of one of the gates into the walled Venetian city.
