Scala is used as a colloquial name for Larnaka, and yet it is mostly used to describe the specific area along the Castle seafront, around Saint Lazarus Church and the nearby city quarters. This guided walk begins at Larnaka Castle, at the end of the Palm Trees Promenade, every Friday at 10.00am. The walk explores the Scala area and visits the handicraft workshops created recently by young ceramic artists, many of them inspired by ancient Cypriot art.
The walk continues through the picturesque streets of traditional houses and balconies through the old Scala Turkish Cypriot quarter, where visitors can see what is a very old residential area still in modern use. The tour also visits Eski Carsi Street, Buyuk Cami and Said Mehment Aga Streets, examining the protected houses and important traditional architecture. The tour ends at Ak Deniz and Bozkurt Streets, where visits are made to Craftsmen’s workshops. Tel: 24304576 / 24654322
