Didn't manage to visit the place from the inside as there is hardly anything to see from the inside. The fort has been restored and looked after and is always a decent site to visit and walk around.

Beautifully restored fort. Lovely to walk around it with lots of photo opportunities. Looks like it is a favorite also for wedding pictures. Not very big with 2.50 euro entrance fee

Only 2.5 euros for an adult, doesn't take too long to get around. Nice view along the beach from the battlement. Shame it's largely restored, but there are some medieval Christian and Muslim headstones, and the execution chamber which us Brits used into the 1940s! Fairly quiet and a chance to get some shade from the sun.

Travelled from ayia nappa to have a look around, small marina, beach not too bad, water again crystal clear, why oh why can't our beaches around the uk look like this...anyway the fort ok but should be free to walk around.took a stroll down the sea front but because it was so hot turned back to return to our hire...

Interesting to see the old tombstones, as well as the artifacts in the small museum. I personally loved the tower in the building next door..amazing construction.

The castle is small but well preserved. The museum is rather dated but has some interesting photographs. The old execution chmber (hanging) is a sombre experience. Nice views from the battlements.

The Archeological Museum is well worth to visit,more than once, if you have the oppurtunity. Be aware of the things you can see out -doors, in the backyard. You visit , you do some reading ( the tourist-information can hjelp you), you go back again, something will be somewhat clearer to you.A prctical advice; it can be rather "chilly "... More

Not a must visit as such but inside is kept orderly and clean. The actual museum has a bit of history and a display of many historical photos which I appreciated.
