A nice visit

We went for a walk and visited the castle which is well maintained and and small cost for entry. The castle takes about an hour to see all that can be seen.

My boyfriend loves medieval castles, so we went here. Because we are both student, we could walk in for free. If you are not a student, then the entrance fee is 2,50 EU. I think the view on the top of the castle is all worth it. A nice view of the sea and the promenade.

Entrance fee is 2.5 euros in case you are wondering. The castle is quite small and you can climb on to the walls for pretty views over the beach. It is enclosed and there is a two story building with a small exhibition space with some archeological finds and pottery plus photos of Cyprus in times gone by. You get... More

We were in the Larnaka district for the day and had walked the beach front before reaching the castle. Entrance is only €2.50 so we thought we'd kill some time and have a look around inside and at the museum that is located in a room on the first floor. As soon as you walk through into the courtyard it... More

Lovely little beachside castle on the Larnaka waterfront at the end of Finikoudes. A few euros entrance fee for what is only really a small venue. If you are in the area why not.

Being Welsh I was somewhat underwhelmed by the size of the castle, but it really is a little gem of a place and worth a visit. The little museum inside was informative, the walls exciting to walk around and the views wonderful.

It was more like a fort -- square shaped, compact courtyard, low walls, no particular stronghold / keep. There are a few artillery pieces and a very small museum, but the best thing about it was the view of the beach (on one side of the fort) and seafront promenade (on the other side). Sign on lower floor of one... More
