Visit Larnaca - Best of Larnaca

Ostensibly the oldest city in Cyprus, Larnaca’s attractions are an eclectic mix. Divers descend here from the world over to visit the wreck of the Zenobia. Jewellers and watchmakers are scattered everywhere if you want to pick up something beautiful and custom made. The Promenade a lovely for family and lovers alike, lined with excellent bars and restaurants and comparatively inexpensive beach stalls, it’s shallow blue waters being absolutely safe to frolic in. However, the towns true and perhaps underappreciated treasure is its rich historical heritage, both archaeological and religious. Mere kilometres away from the town is Choirokoitia, a 9000 year old human settlement the original population of which seems to have simply vanished. A monastery that houses a piece of the Holy Cross, and a mosque the houses the body of the Islamic Prophets’ foster mother… it’s strange that the city isn’t advertised as a major religious destination.
