At the start of Athens Avenue, also known as the Palm Trees Promenade, lies Europe Square. This beautiful historically significant square is home to the very first colonial buildings erected by the Brits in the late-19th century. At the time, Larnaca was the largest port city on the island of Cyprus and the logical place to start colonisation for the Brits. Nowadays, you can still see the old customs warehouses, the bureaus of the chief port master and the office of the customs officer. These historic buildings now house an art gallery, history museum and the municipal cultural services.
