A little slice of local history

If you are in to history, then a quick visit to the fortress will give you a condensed version of the local area and Cypriot history.

Boring place, don't waste your time. It's just a few tiny wrecks of stuff gathered together, no real museum.

If you like history, be sure to take a stop by the castle. It is not large, and does not have as much to see as other sites on the island, but it is worth a stop. There is a small museum with historical information, and the view from the top is wonderful.

It's a very small castle and fort, it could have more information to the visitor, but it is interesting nevertheless and the view to the sea is wonderful.

The place itself is really nice, they have a lot of things exposed but no description of what it is or from when it's dated.... Good view of the beach and good for photos.
