  • Great to see a roman aqueduct! This is situated at the one end of the Larnaca Salt lake. Very easy to get to and great to learn the history of Cyprus. 
  • 拉纳卡,塞浦路斯的第三大城市。这里有著名的哈拉.苏丹清真寺,为纪念穆罕默德的姑母所建。再就是卡马雷渡槽,古老的引水渠,将2千英里外的温泉水,引向城里,解决居民用水问题。有点类似于塞哥维亚的古罗马水渠。 
  • The aqueduct is very well preserved and located near the beach. I recommend to visit it if you have a car or even a bicycle at your disposal.
