Cultural treasures in Larnaca
The island of Cyprus is home to sacred sites for both Muslims and Christians. Larnaca is a charming seaside resort with a rich history. The city’s major attractions include the picturesque boulevard, the Byzantine Church of Saint Lazarus and the impressive salt lake. On the shore of the lake stands the famous Hala Sultan Tekke mosque. This unique building is an important pilgrimage site for Muslims. Another must-see attraction is the Agios Lazaros church, one of only three Byzantine churches that are still standing in Cyprus today.
