“Not much to see but worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

It will not take you very long to see all it has to offer. But it is very cheap to go in (about €1 last time I visited). The views from the top are great for taking photos of the surrounding area and beach.

They sometimes hold open air concerts and performances here.

“Interesting but not a lot there.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Nicely renovated and quite attractive in the courtyard but the museum is pretty small - not surprisingly, perhaps. Also good if you can see evening concerts there because it is very atmospheric at night and means you can see the building at least without paying.

“Small fort in Larnaca, nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

As there is really little to "see" in Larnaca the Fort is for sure a place to visit. It's just next to the sea, there is a small museum inside, but apart from that and the stroll inside to see some canons and walls, not anything spectacular.

“Small but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We drove aound this building so many times and were glad when we finally decided to pay a visit. It's only small but it has worth a visit. Our son really enjoyed sitting on the cannon and the little museum gives some good information on the history of the fort.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Interesting, inside the tombs and gallows a bit eerie. Lots of artefacts, Ottoman room and previous history displayed. Worth a visit
