Major Attractions

Located in the heart of Larnaca, the Church of St. Lazarus is one of the most important surviving Byzantine monuments in Cyprus. Built in 890 by Byzantine Emperor Leo VI, the Wise, the church is home to impressive paintings and the Tomb of Lazarus. Do not miss the Byzantine Museum across the courtyard, home to wonderful religious icons and relics.

Close by to St. Lazarus Church stands the Turkish Fort. Built in 1625 by the Ottomans, the Fort was used for defending the city, while during the British colonization it served as a prison. Today, it houses the Larnaca Medieval Museum, home to a collection of artillery as well as a collection of black and white photographs of the area. Climb up to the top of the Fort and enjoy stunning views across the Mediterranean Sea.

Pierides Archaeological Foundation Museum is a fantastic 18th century mansion, which houses the most comprehensive collection of Cypriot antiquities from the Neolithic to the medieval period. Another impressive museum the Larnaca’s Archaeological Museum, home to findings from the Neolithic Age to the Roman period. The museum’s highlight is the extremely beautiful terracotta figures.

Stavrovouni Monastery sits atop a sharp clifftop in fine isolation. Built in 327 AD by the Empress Helena, the Monastery commands the surrounding countryside, which has been of great religious importance during the Greco-Roman period.
