Visited the site and met very few inside. Charged a fee but nothing much to see. Old fort rebuilt in 16th century. Room to improve with more details, sign boards and explanations.

Not too much too see here, but entry is cheap so worth a visit. You get good views of the surrounding areas from the walls.

Like most of the tourist sites in Larnaca, it is nice but not spectacular. If you are not to far away, you should stop by.
