At the southern end of the Foinikoudes Promenade lies one of Larnaca is most historically important buildings. Originally just a small fortification, a proper castle was built up here in the late Medieval Age, slowly falling to disuse over the years. The Ottomans, the British and the Germans have all claimed some use of it, usually as a war prison and execution ground. Since then it’s been transformed into a museum containing relics of Early Christian and Byzantine heritage as well as tools, utensils and weapons from other stages of Cypriotic history. The castle courtyard is now actively used as a small open-air theatre. It’s not the most exciting fort in the world, but cannons are always worth looking at. The view from the ramparts is nice. You need not go out of your way to visit, but if you’re walking the Promenade, go ahead and pop in for a bit.
