The view is extraordinarily from the top of the castle. Inside there is a small museum. It is worth visiting, especially in the hot summer days.

This is a site right on the beach, easily accessible on foot, and quite interesting. My five-year-old son loved the canons.

Loved it! It's one of the must-see places in Larnaca. Beside the amazing view that it offers on the sea and boulevards, it hosts many cultural events.

I really never realized the British were here before. They had a gallows chamber inside. There are several burials in the walls and the grounds are well maintained. You can take the steps to the top walls where you have a nice view out to...More

Very little place on the beach of Larnaka. Few expositions with the history of this place, other rooms without clear information. Entrance is about 5 euros or even less, so it's not great loss of money, but it seems to be a loss if time.

Only cost 2.50 Euro to get in. Children would love to visit to see cannons etc. Lots of pictures of the island plus artefacts found at old sites

It's a relatively small castle just next to the beach. Well maintained, well located and can be seen completely in 1-1 1/2 hr maximum. Can enjoy cool breeze and nice views from the castle roof.

Larnaca Medieval castle commenced construction in the late 1100's and served until the late 1800's. There is no info posted around the displays, and no english maps were available on my visit. The gallows room was the only location with information. Very disappointing to visit

Lovely medieval castle with museum. €2.50 entry & OAPS free. They hold events too. Adds a bit of culture to your holiday!

There are no restaurants in the castle. Most restaurants and cafes are located on the waterfront and Finikoudes. To the nearest less than 1 minute walk.
