LARNAKA AND AROUND
Arrival at Larnaca

SIR SAMUEL WHITE BAKER
Cyprus as I saw it in 1879

Chapter I. Arrival at Larnaca

GIOVANNI MARITI
Travels in the Island of Cyprus

Chapter IV.Of the  city of  Larnaca.
Larnaca, of which I am now to speak, should properly be called a large village, but as it is the commercial emporium of the whole island, and ranks officially next after Nicosia, though dependent on the Governor there, it can show reason for calling itself a city, being also the seat of a Greek bishopric and the residence of the consuls of the European Powers
Read chapter IV. Of the city of Larnaca

GIOVANNI MARITI
Travels in the Island of Cyprus
Salines, Salina or Les Salines

Chapter II.Concerning the port and town of the  Salines.
The port of the Salines in the south of the island is the general anchorage for vessels of every nation, not only because it is the best to be found in all the kingdom of Cyprus, but also because it is the nearest to Larnaca, the city which has the greatest trade in all the island.
