IntroductionThis ancient city, near Famagusta in Turkish Cyprus, was destroyed more than 3,000 years ago. You can now visit an impressive 1-sq-mi/2-sq-km archaeological site that dates to 2700 BC. When it was excavated in the late 1800s, archaeologists found ivory, gold and bronze statuettes scattered among the stone buildings. Recognizable structures include a bronze-smelting shop and the town wall. (Don't get it mixed up with a suburb of Greek Nicosia that is also called Engomi.) 30 mi/50 km east of Nicosia.
