To visit Larnaca is to travel back in time. The ancient city is home to a plethora of sites of major importance. From your hotel, visit the Byzantine church Saint-Lazare. The 9th century religious building was, in turn, a church, monastery, mosque, then again a church. It is said that its basement would house the tomb of St. Lazarus. A five minute walk from there, the fort is the other must-visit of Larnaca. It was in the Middle Ages that this bastion was born. Each occupant of the island added his stone to the building. In its museum, the history of Cyprus can be discovered through the exhibition of objects from the 4th to the 19th century, found during excavations. Loop your route through Hala Sultan Tekke Mosque. This monument was founded on the shores of Larnaca Salt Lake in honor of one of the relatives of Mohammed. A high place of Islam, this mosque, built starting in 1760, enjoys an exceptional environment.
