We visited the caravanserai in Nicosia as part of our Cyprus tour. I learned something about the function of such stopping places, the activities carried out, and the allocation of space to people and animals. There did not seem to be much explanatory material for the non-guided tourist. We did not bother with the souvenir shops and food places.

A short walk from the Ledra Street crossing point the Buyuk Han Cultural Centre was a nice place to visit in North. If you go with high hopes of a cultural centre you may be disappointed, if you are looking for a well restored historic building with a range of cafes and crafty shops then this is the place for you. The cafes are on the ground floor and the first floor has shops with various crafts on sale along side a helping of the usual tourist fayre. Our guide gave us a brief history explaining it had been used as an inn and a prison in its past incarnations. Free to enter it was well worth a visit.

We followed the crowds of tour parties and found this place. Beautiful old building with lots of little independent producers. Lovely handicrafts to buy. There is a toilet but you need a 50 cent coin to use it.

This is a local craft market in a old market square. There are lots of stalls selling lots of home made stuff, not the usual fakes and rubbish you normally get in a Turkish market.
Also there are some nice clean toilets which is very useful. They are 50 cents though and don't take anything else except 1 Turkish lira
