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.

We visited the fort on our last day. The guy on duty was very polite and smiley. He gave us the leaflet detailing the different areas of interest. We had a very leisurely look round as we were the only people in at the time!! The views from the top of the fort are amazing. The artefacts in the museum... More

The castle of larnaca is a great sample of the medieval times. With some imagination the visitor can feel the era of the medieval times passing in front of his eyes. The castle is very well preserved and the whole experience although short totally worth it.

Very nice preserved medieval fort. Two level building filled with Genovese, Otoman and British mixed history. A true piece of local mediterranean history. With a nice view over the Phinikoudes beach.

It's a small castle and doesn't offer a lot but still the price is high, To be honest I wouldn't go in.

The castle is nice and old. Beautiful, but nothing much to see really. The entrance is 2,5 € and we walked around the castle for about 20 min, just because we took photos. You don't have a lot of sightseeing places in Larnaca, so this castle should be on your list.

When you have time on your hands in Larnaca visit the old fort and wander around the battlements. Often hold concerts there too.
