A lovely little castle which we visited as part of the 'Love Cyprus' tour. It has been restored and has lovely surroundings. Nice little cafe serving freshly made orange juice.

Lovely little castle that is definitely worth the visit. It has been restored and has a very homely feel about it.

There is not much left of this castle but still worth a look and to hear the history of the castle spent about 1 hour here

Whilst Kolossi castle is worth seeing there isn't really enough to satisfy more than a 2 hour visit. Therefore it's more of a suitable stop off point if you are travelling from Paphos to visit Limassol for the day for example.

Worth a visit if you are in the area, we combined it with a trip to Kourio amphitheatre. The castle has amazing views from the top and an interesting site next door where excavations are ongoing.

Hard to imagine how old this structure really is, but it was very interesting to see it and to climb the precarious spiral stairs to gain a view of the surroundings.

The castle and the surrounding buildings are fairly well preserved. The information signs at points of interest are very informative. if you are into a bit of history it's worth dropping in here for an hour. there's a small cafe which does a wicked Cypriot coffee and sells food and drink and souvenirs. other than that, there's not a lot...

Inside each level is divided into two large rooms. As far as 'castles' go consider thus a small residence.
