Nice small fort and museum. It was interesting to walk around. If you're into medieval history you should come here. There're some medueval pottery and effigies. Also there's small exibition of german artillery during the Great war.

If you feel like taking a few minutes away from the beach in Larnaka, then this fort/castle is worth a visit. Aside from a brochure, there is not much detail in what you're seeing, but still a part of the city's history. They could add...More

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.

Hi, there are plenty of restaurants near the castle, because the location is right at the end of the Finikoudes, which is the seaside where all the cafes and restaurants are.
