The Turkish Fortress

The fort, also known as the medieval museum, is situated on the Larnaca seafront and believed to have been built in 1625. Its first use was as a prison in the years of British rule. It is now a small archaeological museum which houses medieval articles and finds from Kition and the Hala Sultan Tekke excavations.
