Municipal Art Gallery

Europe Square

Larnaca, Cyprus

One can find the Municipal Art Gallery in the five stone-built former customs storages placed in front of the Europe Square at Larnaca. The building attached to the storages and being a piece of fundamental architecture turned out to be ideal for the allocation of the Historical Archives Museum. The customs storages were in use from 1882 until 1973. In 1973 as a result of the creation the modern port of Larnaca, big storages had been built and all the services, including the customs offices and the port administration moved to new the premises. The two-storey building up to its renovation was used as the Larnaca Officer’s Club. The project was awarded in 1995 with the Europa Nostra award for the "quality it offers to the cultural life of the citizens".
