Larnaca – amongst the 20 oldest cities
Tuesday, September 05, 2017
 

The telegraph published an article about the 20 oldest cities in the world and Larnaca was amongst them, with inhabitants settling as early as 1,400 BC.Larnaca came 17th in the list while Jericho in the Palestinian teritories was first, since its earliest inhabitants settled in 9000 BC. Byblos in Lebanon came second, followed by Aleppo and Damascus in Syria and Susa in Iran. Old cities like Beirut,Jerusalem and Athens also made the list.

Robert Byron ( British travel writer) : “History in this island is almost too profuse. It gives one sort of mental indigestion. “

Larnaca was founded as “citium” by the Phoenicians and is well known for its pretty seafront lined with palm trees. It is situated on the southern coast of the island and it is a city full of history and culture. It is built on the site where ancient Kition once stood and it is the birthplace of the Greek philosopher Zeno and the second home of Saint Lazarus. One can find here ancient Byzantine and Muslim monuments – such as the Church of Saint Lazarus and the Mosque of Hala Sultan. The Mosque is located next to a salt lake where thousands of flamingos make their annual stopover every winter.
