In front of him erected a monument to Archbishop Makarios III. In the palace there are several museums: the Byzantine, Folk Art Museum, Art Gallery. In the courtyard is the Cathedral of St. John.

In the Palace of the Archbishop can also visit the library and research center. But Archbishop Makarios private apartments can be seen if only a very lucky: they are opened for tourists rarely.
