The Kyrenia (Girne) Gate is one of the three gates built into the fortifications built around Nicosia (Lefkoşa) in order to protect the city in the Venetian Era and it is located to the north of the City Walls. It was named ‘The Del Proveditore Gate’ after the famous Venetian architect Proveditore Francesco Barbaro. The Gate was renovated by the Ottomans in 1821 and a domed room was added on top. The gate currently serves the public as a Tourist Information Office.
