Larnaka Fort
Larnaka (Larnaca) Fort stands on the shore at the south end of ‘Phoinikoudes’corniche and was probably built during the reign of James I (1382 -1398) to protect the town’s harbour. Its original shape remains unknown, but the fort appears to have had the form of a square tower. Rebuilt in 1625 during the Ottoman period, it was used as a prison in the first years of British rule. The present day fort of Larnaka (Larnaca) is a square building of different eras, with a courtyard in the centre. At the entrance of the fort on the north side is a two - storey building, probably of the Ottoman period. It is joined to earlier parts of the original fort in the south and east by a stone wall. Many rooms of the fort are used as a museum, exhibiting items related to its long history. The courtyard is used for cultural events, especially during summer.
