One of the numerous interesting monuments in Cyprus, especially Larnaka. Medieval atmosphere and valuable information about navy in the past, and also prisons and tortures. The last frightened me a little. There were also some interesting samples of medieval life in the collection inside. Some moments i thought i lived in the era of pirates :)....i tried to give it...

Loads of history in one place, you get the chance to see one of the first artilleries brought to Cyprus and climb the stone stairway to visit the small but full museum, and take a graphical picture of the are on the castle wall with preserved cannons

there is a fee of 2,5 euro, that covers the entrance and a leaflet about the fortress. there is not much to see inside; the inner yard is used for cultural gatherings. good for taking pictures as it offers a lookout.

A small one. We didn't ascend the castle in fact. Not sure if there is such possibility at all. Passed near it, from the both sides. :-)

Small but well organized, interesting information about the history of the island. Some rooms could use some more cards or signs with information, but a good impression all in all.

A great place to visit for a few euros. Great views from the ramparts and a museum with some great artifacts and history of the fort.

A good way of spending an hour whilst in Larnaca. The kids loved scrambling around the castle pretending they were knights. Some interesting artifacts in the little museum. Only a couple of Euros entrance fee - didn't pay for the kids (all under 9). Some good photo opportunities overlooking the town, sea and promenade.

Beautiful gardens surrounded by hight walkable walls that give fantastic views across both the city and the Mediterranean. Great examples of... More

A nice little castle with a good view of the sea and some interesting canons. It was a good price and my kids enjoyed running around it.
