Originally built during the Middle Ages, the Fort took its present form during
Ottoman rule. After the end of the Ottoman rule in Cyprus, the British
converted it into a prison during the first years of their rule.
Today the Fort houses the District Mediaeval Museum, whose collection
covers 15 centuries of history, from the early Christian period to the 19th
century. The open-air courtyard is used in the summer for functions by
Larnaca Municipality. Near the Fort isTusla Mosque, which was originally a
mediaeval three-aisled church.
The Fort and the Museum are located on Athinon Avenue, at the Larnaca seafront.
