Kition Archaeological Site

Larnaca, Cyprus

The architectural ruins of the ancient city-kingdom of Kition dating to the 13th century BC were found here. Excavations have revealed cyclopean walls made of giant blocks of stone and a complex of five temples. Nearby lay the foundations of the ancient port of Kition, an important commercial centre in ancient Cyprus. Of interest are the drawings of ships etched into the walls of buildings. The site is a stop on the Aphrodite Cultural Route.
