Scala and its Craftsmen

The Guided Tour (City Route) of ‘Scala and its Craftsmen’ explores the area around Larnaka (Larnaca) Fort and the church of Agios Lazaros, which is rich in old architecture and traditional customs.

The walk takes you firstly through picturesque streets lined with traditional, white washed houses with enclosed balconies, as well as the Mosque of Kebir Djami (built in the 16th century), and Larnaka Fort, which now houses the town’s Medieval Museum.

A visit to the handicraft workshops is next, where you can watch the ceramic artists at work, many of whom are younger artists inspired by ancient Cypriot art.

The walk returns to Larnaka Fort through the narrow streets and the old, traditional neighbourhood of Piale Pasha.
