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!

Right in the city center, this is a very interesting castle. It costs a nominal fee to see the castle.

This castle is a must if in Larnaka. At €2.50 entrance it's cheap entry. Kids were allowed access free. The museum is small but educational and the views from within are spectacular. The early Christian effect is evident as is the ottoman influence.

If you are staying around the Finikoudes beach, this fort is a place which you can't skip, as it is located at the end of the Finikoudes promenade.

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.
