don't expect anything mindblowing of a castle or anything. the whole fort is really small, you can walk around in about 30 minutes. entrance fee is 2.5 euros - that is you can also visit the museum, meh! I wouldn't say it is worth paying that price, but the view from the upper side is really nice, you can see... More

If you are in the area and you are interested in history then it is worth visiting this small castle. Nice view from the top roof. A small museum also available.

We went to get out of the house and just go for a walk. It's incredibly small compared to other castles we've been to on the island. I was expecting more, so was a bit disappointed. There weren't many signs talking about the history of the building which was disappointing as well. If you're in the area, it's not a... More

Don't expect a real huge castle.It's very little, looks more like a little fortress. Entrance is 2,5 euro. Even that is exaggerated.But everyone his choice. I don't recommend it at all

It stands on the southern point of the coastal Finikoudes Avenue, next to the edge of the water. It was built the 17th century on the site of a previous fort. Since it is in my hometown I have come several times but if I do have some free time I like stepping in for some nice views. It houses... More

The castle looks well maintained from outside and inside. It was quite small but if passing by worth a glimpse, even if just viewing from inside the entrance way without buying a ticket.

The Larnaka fort was interesting and the view from the top was super. The area is perfect for walking, so make sure to have comfortable shoes. Worth a visit!

Located right on the sea front. Considerably reconfigured and repurposed over the years following the various waves of occupation one of the last being as a place of execution by hanging during the time of the British. Some nice views of the promenade from the ramparts. Difficult to know where originality and restoration meet. Clearly in past times the cannons... More
