Kamares Aqueduct

Larnaca  >  Cyprus

Kamares, the Old Aqueduct of Larnaca is a nice place to combine birding and history. It borders the birdrich salt lake of Larnaca.

Description

The Kamares aqueduct was built in the Roman style in 1746 by the Turkish governor of Larnaca, Bekir Pasha. There are more than 20 arches still intact. The aqueduct is surrounded by water, marshes and some reedlands. A cobbled area with benches and a footpath allow you to enjoy this monument, with a path linking it up with Larnaca Salt Lake. Birds you can see here are Spur-winged LapwingLaughing DoveBlack-winged Stilt and Little Egret.
