Salamis Ruins

Salamis was the most important ancient city in Cyprus, and the ruins are still impressive today. Set over a site over one kilometre long, and with a sandy beach along the entire length of the site, Salamis is a great place for a day out in North Cyprus. Allow plenty of time; to walk the entire site is a trek of almost 5km!

Early History of Salamis

Legend tells how Salamis was originally founded by a hero from the Trojan War, Teucer, son of the King of Salamis. The city flourished, and was soon minting its own coinage. The citizens of Salamis resisted the Persian invasion during the fifth century BC, and helped Alexander the Great. However, the last king of Salamis committed suicide and burned his palace to the ground rather than submit to the Egyptian king Ptolemy I in 295BC.
