As part of a day out in a hire car choose this attraction, so pleased we did. Like many historical places on the island this is well looked after, parking and other facilities all in place and only for a few Euro's for a family of four. The castle has signed areas to explain the history and has the main... More

Amazing castle. It's a structural wonder. We were really glad to have found this and explored the grounds and inside the castle. A definite visit in Limassol.

A well kept site, simple but suggestive, not far from Kourion. Climb the stairs to the main gate and arrive to the first floor; here you will find two large and simple rooms. a stair leading down to the basement, probably used as a cellar. and a winding stair case to the second floor, where are two other rooms very...

We visited Kolossi castle as part of one of our trips, its small inside, with steep steps if you want to climb to the tower, not much else to see

A place to have a taste of the past. The castle is well maintained. You can have the chance to travel back in the centuries.

When we approached this castle (with poor signs leading to it) we were pretty disappointed. Looks like a sand bucket tower made with kids on the beach. I've read it has an interesting history and that it is surrounded by vineyards from which the Knights of St.John made their famous vine, but it didn't attract us to go in.

Was quite disappointed really, just 1 tower which you entered then climbed stairs to the top. A couple of places to take decent photos and a café/snack bar
