Markets in North Cyprus

Place: Various  (01 Jan 2019 - 31 Dec 2019 )

EVERY SATURDAY - CHATEAU LAMBOUSA, LAPTA

(approx. 6 km, or 20mins drive west of Kyrenia)

This is the largest and most popular market in the Kyrenia region of North Cyprus and has a great variety of stalls, all of which are situated amongst the grounds of the old, but beautiful remains of the Chateau Lambousa Hotel. There are often more than 100 stalls tightly packed across the outdoor garden area and consequently you can easily spend a couple of hours wondering around the market without even realizing. Several of the stalls are run by local charities and are therefore also a great place to find out about any upcoming charity events in the local area – many of which are great fun to attend. As well as the market there is a small café which gives you a chance to sit and recover or listen in on the local goings-on of the Kyrenia area.

An excellent range of goods are available at this market including clothes, plants, books, jewellery, paintings, other artwork, carpets, food and much more.
