Comments 

The Venetian fortifications of Nicosia are examined in this essay against the background of the development of European fortifications in general. The transformation of Nicosia from Lusignan walled city to Venetian fortress is documented, and subsequent examples of fortifications are illustrated following the Nicosia stellar prototype. Consideration is also given to the fortifications of Famagusta.
