A guide for first-time visitors to Larnaca

Whether you are planning a holiday to Cyprus, or simply looking for a great day out, there are a number of things to do in Larnaca. You can visit a castle, an archaeological site, and even the famous Salt Lake.

Ancient Kition archaeological site

Located in the village of Kiti outside of Larnaca, the Kition Archeological Site is a fascinating archaeological site. The site is composed of two separate areas, Kathari and Pamboula, which have been excavated by the Department of Antiquities. These two sites represent important archaeological sites in Cyprus.

Kathari is a temple complex that was constructed in the late Bronze Age. It is also associated with the Geometrical period. The Kathari area was inhabited by the Mycenaean Achaeans in the 13th century BC. The temple was built around the same time as the Temple of Aphrodite-Astarte, a majestic temple that was erected by the Phoenicians. These two temples were built by the same masons as the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem. These two temples are the most important archaeological remains from the ancient Kition site.

The site is open to the public. It is a short walk from the Ancient Kition site. It features a museum that has various items from the ancient site. The site is a great place to explore, but there are also day tours to the surrounding areas.

The Pamboula site is another temple that was built in the ninth century BC. The temple was surrounded by craft plants for processing copper. The site was occupied throughout the Geometrical and Hellenistic periods.

The Aphrodite cult continued to thrive on the island until the end of the Roman period. This cult is one of the most prominent religious sanctuaries in the area. The site is part of the Aphrodite Cultural Route. Other sites in the area include the Catecombs of Agia Solomoni, the Tombs of the Kings, and Paleopaphos.

Larnaca is a city that is full of historical architecture. It is a popular destination throughout the year. It is located near a beautiful beach.

Alternatively, you can rent a car to travel to other sites. It is a great way to spend a few days in the Mediterranean.


Kamares Aqueduct

Located in the Kamares area of Larnaca, the Kamares Aqueduct is a famous historical site. The aqueduct was constructed during the Ottoman period to provide clean water to the city. It is surrounded by marshes and more than twenty arches are still intact. The Aqueduct is particularly stunning at night.

The aqueduct has been described by Tassos Mikropoulos as one of the most important constructions in Cyprus during the Ottoman period. It was built to transport water from the Tremithos River to Larnaca.

In the 17th century, the Turkish governor of Larnaka, Bekir Pasha, ordered the construction of a water supply system. He built the aqueduct in Roman style and it served the city until the 1930s. The aqueduct is located near the old road to Limassol.

The mosque and mausoleum of Hala Sultan Tekke are located nearby. This complex is considered a religious shrine by Muslims and many pilgrims visit the area. It is also home to a tomb that is said to contain the remains of the wet nurse of the prophet Muhammad. The mosque has a minaret and a cemetery. It is a good place to take a break.
