Great to visit in Larnaca! Just at the end of the strip! This Castle gives you a great view of the bay of Larnaca and just worth while visiting for that! Also some great history into the castle and the reason why is was built ect!

What a lovely little visit, in between eating lovely food, dipping your toe in the beach, diving and surviving, this is a lovely tranquil spot to while an hour away, set on he corner of the marina, whilst not much to see, you can imagine its worth in the day in a prominent position.

A one-time visit, not too much to see. A very old Fort, that's been passed hands to hands for centuries, rebuilt a lot. Served as a police station up till modern times

Worth a visit to see the architecture and exhibits. Well laid out, plenty of explanation and good views. Exceptionally cheap, especially for concessions - only 2.50 Euros for 2 seniors.
