A visit to Larnaca is incomplete without a stop at Larnaka's castle.

Built in 1625, or probably earlier, this castle served as a prison during the early years of British rule before being converted into a museum. From its walkway along the beach, you can enjoy the view of impressive Buyuk Kebir Cami mosque.

The castle is now home to an archaeological museum that focuses on the life of ancient Kition. During the summer, the castle doubles as Larnaca's Municipal Cultural Centre.


• One of the key landmarks of Larnaca

• Built at different periods of time, the castle was used as a prison during the British administration

• It houses a small museum with antiquities that belong to various eras, dating from the 4th to the 18th centuries

Look Out For:

• The castle is closed on the weekends

• Non-wheelchair accessible
