The Old fort in Larnaka is a relic in the middle of the city. It has a nice small museum inside with ancient hand writing in Arabic, Hebrew and Greek. In total we toured the place for 30-45 min. The fort is very well preserved and the view of the promenade and beach is great

Larnaka Castle is a site well worth going to see if you are in this town. You can't miss it - it is located at the end of the Finikoudes Promenade. It is well preserved and offers an opportunity to the history of this site and indeed Cyprus. It was originally constructed to defend the town of Larnaca and the... More

This is a surprisingly interesting and informative place to visit. There is a great amount of history and a wide range of exhibits on display. The castle was at one time used as a prison and you also see some excellent pieces in the museum. As far as forts go this is well preserved and it also offers excellent views... More

We visited the castle a few days ago, during an excursion on the Larnaca boardwalk. This is a simple castle, well preserved with a few cute exhibits and a beautiful view of the sea and promenade. I would not have gone there especially, but it is definitely worth a visit as part of a general tour of Larnaca

Small museum and castle. By itself this isn't worth a trip but added onto a longer walk or into the day it's a good activity. The entrance fee is cheap but you can easily spend an hour wondering around. It has a good view of the beach and the town area.

this a very small and short visit site to see, It is well kept and cheap, but not very exciting. If you are in Larnaka for a day you could pop in, but you could equally give it a miss.
