Great gem of a castle on the front of Larnaka, only €2.50 each and students Free ya can't go wrong. Great views from the top of the castle all along Larnaka seafront, not the biggest place to look around but well worth the admission fee. Helpful staff and some good information boards...All round worth a visit....

We have visited this Castle for 2.5 EUR as entrance fee per person, but there were only few thing to see inside. Except of the exceptional view along the beach it shows a poor collection of potteries and some small caves used as prison. Some cannons from ancient times and WW II on the courtyard are also exposed.

Not the best castle I have been too, but then you should go to Germany if you want castles. Not expensive and can be a little bit of peace from the busier sea front. Great views over the blue Med and old town.

It costs 2.5 euro (fixed) price, free for students to enter the castle, there isn't really anything interesting in it. what you see from the outside is generally what you imagine for it to be on the inside, if you want castles go to scotland.

The castle is well worth a visit. It has a good explanation of its history and you can explore to your heart's content.

This fort on the beach is a pleasant interlude from the busy cafes of Larnaca main street. It has a little bit of history and nice views from the top walls. Doesnt cost very much and you can spend maybe 30 minutes there. Good on very hot day to escape the sun.

It is not a castle like the ones you see in Greece or Andalucia, but it is fine and just by the Marina. A walk on the marina is a must, at the end of which you will find the castle.

We just had a stroll on the walls of the medieval Castle. Very Nice to see Larnaca from the top of these walls.
