Larnaca Castle is one of my favourite places in Larnaca. It's not a very large structure, but has a lovely little courtyard, with lots of scented shrubs, and a great upper level from which to view the sea. Some sources claim that the castle was constructed during the Medieval Period; other sources claim it was constructed during the Ottoman Period.... More

At first sight there is nothing to see. But take your time, read the pamphlet they give you with the ticket, read every sign and look at all the displays. Everything there is a bit shabby but in the end you start to enjoy this immersion into cruel and beautiful past. The castle is also a great vantage point, good... More

We came here looking to wee a castle, it's not really that only a small fort. Nonetheless, it's very interesting and the museum is very nice. Oh and we're all students so we got in for free

I stayed at a outlying area in Larnaka that was not nearly as well located. Stay in this area. It is central and with much more to see.

It's small but cheap (€2.50) to enter. Interesting to see. Good views of Larnaca. Then walk along the promenade.

I had visited the Medieval Castle when a friend had his wedding there. Everything was just simple and smart. I felt that I was in a Castle in the middle of the forest but in reality I was in the city of Larnaca. Nice place to take pictures and enjoy the history of the place. Within walking distance from the... More

Just take a stroll near it at night, it looks mysterious in lights. Do not think it is worth going to the museum. Just a kind of historic deocration for Larnaca town.

Great museum when you enter on the right which had plenty of artifacts from years past. Great views of the beaches from the first floor and all for €2.50 each...
