Plans to improve visitor facilities in Larnaca in Cyprus have been outlined by new mayor Andreas Vyras.
Work is underway following the award of an €18 million EU grant last year.
The developments include a €5.5 million new municipal market incorporating a two-storey building with bazaars of traditional produce and products, and a section for young, emerging artisans, along with cafes, restaurants and an exhibition space.
Other projects include renovations to a municipal sports centre; hop-on-hop-off buses that will be accessible for disabled people; squares and paving in areas of the town centre and old town; increased cycle lanes and car parking, and an overhaul of municipal gardens.
The work will follow recent improvements to the seafront promenade and a two-mile stretch between Larnaca’s medieval castle and McKenzie Beach.
Hoteliers are also investing in upgrading facilities, including the long-established, 228-room Palm Beach Hotel & Bungalows located just outside Larnaca, which has undergone three winter seasons of extensive refurbishment.
