Larnaka (Larnaca) – Past and Present

The Guided Tour (City Route) of ‘Larnaka (Larnaca) – Past and Present’ begins by passing by the interesting and protected 1919 buildings of the Colonial Administration, through the famous Foinikoudes (palm-tree lined) promenade, which is a popular and bustling coastal strip.

Participants will then walk through streets of old, preserved buildings towards the old market, which leads to the grand church of Agios Lazaros – the patron saint of the town.

The walk finally takes in the shopping street of Zenonos Kitieos and passes by the Pierides Museum – which is housed in a mansion built in 1840 – as well as the Club of Larnaka, a protected building that was built in the mid-19th century.
