The Gamblers’ Inn

It is an Ottoman inn built in the first quarter of the 18th century A.D. by Fuat Tüccarbaşı, one of the wealthy residents of Nicosia. The Gothic tracery of the arch at the entrance, and the fact that the proportions of these arches run counter to the other arches and to Ottoman architectural principals, suggest that this may have been part of an earlier structure. The structure is rectangular in plan, on two storeys. Travellers would stay in rooms in the upper floors, while the rooms on the ground floor were intended as shelter for the animals and goods in transit.
