“Interesting visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Great place to visit to explore the history of Cyprus. Not crowded but we were off season. Nice view of the sea and the city also.

“really good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Have walked passed this fort every day and finally decided to go in.

First bit of good news was that they didn't charge for children so was only 3.40 Euros for the four of us.

Won't take too long to go round but was well worth the visit.

“Interesting - worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Looks a bit boring from the beach, but has been well restored and has some interesting exhibits. The views and photography from the battlements above are great. Look out for sunbathing lizards!!

“Larnaca Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The museum is usually open from 0900 until 1800. A lot of local events are using the fort as a venue such as theatres and musicians.

If you are going as a group the place is very fascinating and additionally nearby restaurants and cafes can accommodate your needs literally next to the beach.

“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.
