Larnaca Castle Fort And Museum - Review
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 itâ€™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. Itâ€™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 youâ€™re walking the Promenade, go ahead and pop in for a bit.

Larnaca Castle Fort And Museum, Larnaca Reviews
Must see place if you are visiting Larnaca, 3 min walk but that is the best you'll get. There is a few boat parties, cruises and restaurant ships for an authentic Mediterranean experience. Good for English and Russian speakers!
Good place to have a walk and enjoy and ice cream during sundown, when temperatures are not too high. You can get tickets for boat tours and romantic dinner options available as well.
Nice view along the Finikoudes Beach and to the Larnaca Castle from the pier.
Great place to walk near the beach coast.. eat and have some drinks
The pier is a location with low levels of radio noise so it is an ideal location for reception of mefium wave and long wave broadcasts from the Middle East.
