Top 5 Things To Do in Larnaca Town

  • Peer out over the Larnaca Salt Lake, where you will see dry salt in the summer and pink flamingos in the water in the winter
  • Enter the depths of the Catacomb of Phaneromeni Church, built somewhere around the 8th century and thought by some to imbue magical aid upon those who follow prescribed rituals, and admire the conglomeration of architectural styles representative of the city above on the church itself
  • Look inside Larnaca Castle, a medieval fort, dating back to at least the 12th century, which is now a museum with a courtyard for open-air performances
