East meets West in Larnaca as both Christianity and Islam have revered religious sites here, with the mosque of Hala Sultan, an important Moslem place of pilgrimage, and the church and tomb site of St Lazarus, Jesus’ friend whom he resurrected from the dead.
The modern city of Larnaca is built on the shores of the Bay of Larnaca in the SE of the island, a few kilometres to the north of the ancient kingdom of Kition. It is characterized by its low relief landscape as no part of the city has an elevation of more than
50 meters above sea level.
The city of Larnaca is well-known for its picturesque sea-front which is beautifully lined with rows of palm trees, charming cafes and restaurants and a scenic boardwalk which is nestled alongside Larnaca’s nautical marina. The Larnaca seafront promenade – or ” Finikoudes” as is known in the local Greek dialect – is the city’s hub for action and events. Indeed, the promenade comes alive on weekends and during major festivals as diverse cultural activities are staged here. The most important of these for the city of Larnaca is Kataklysmos or the Festival of the Flood, celebrated in early summer with a series of cultural events.
Built near the seaside and enriched by beautiful beaches, people may think that Larnaca is only a summer resort destination but it is not only that. Larnaca is a town with many archaeological sites and places of interest. It has six museums within walking distance from its centre and its art galleries and workshops are real sources of inspiration.
The Larnaca Campus is housed in a new state of the art facility right at the heart of the Bay of Larnaca within meters of the serene Mediterranean coastline and only minutes from the town centre and the Larnaca International Airport.
