Description

This book tells the story of the inner, a story of glory and lament at the same time, a story of a city in the easternmost corner of the Mediterranean Sea, “the little sister of Damascus”, some say…… A city that became the capital of the island after the Arab raids of the 6th and the 7th centuries…….The British did not hesitate to exit the walled city, they first made openings to the Venetian fortifications, and soon thereafter the town started to expand, abandoning the secluded and protected environment within the walls, a number of new quarters were formed and the West timidly returned to a city that was awakening from three centuries of Ottoman Rule.
