Let $M$ be a lattice module over a  $C$-lattice $L$.  Let $Spec^{p}(M)$ be the collection of all prime elements of $M$. In this article, we consider a  topology on $Spec^{p}(M)$, called the classical Zariski topology and investigate the topological properties of $Spec^{p}(M)$ and the algebraic properties of $M$. We investigate this topological space from the point of view of spectral spaces.  By  Hochster's characterization of a spectral space, we show that for each lattice module $M$ with finite spectrum, $Spec^{p}(M)$ is a spectral space. Also we introduce finer patch topology on $Spec^{p}(M)$ and we show that $Spec^{p}(M)$ with finer patch topology is a compact space and every irreducible closed subset of $Spec^{p}(M)$ (with classical Zariski topology) has a generic point  and $Spec^{p}(M)$ is a spectral space, for a lattice module $M$ which has ascending chain condition on prime radical elements.
