Worth a visit for its history and huge rooms. Won't take you long. Don't forget the gardens and old trees and the old grain store. Cafe opposite good too for a fresh squeezed orange juice! There is also a fab bakery nearby in the village on the main road.

A cool castle to visit, especially with the low entrance cost. It's small and can easily browse around in a half hour, and that's really taking it slow. I appreciate history and these amazing old castles, structures, and architecture...but I would been okay skipping this site. Our next site was the Site of Kourion, and that was well worth the...

Driving up to the castle it doesn't get you terribly excited but it turns out to be quite a well-preserved and interesting place. The price is very low (€2.50 per person) and once inside the grounds you realise that it is more than worth the cost. Worth a trip for sure!

I only had time to walk around the outside. The castle is really only the Keep and a few ruins around it. It would have been better to have had the time to go inside and have a look around. It wasn't easy to find, there is a big sign on the motorway exit, then you drive down a road... More

We went here on a very rainy day and still enjoyed it. Fresh squeezed local orange juice sold across the road. Good views from the top.

I'm not really a big fan of castles admittedly, but this one is fairly small (as Castles go) and pretty unremarkable. We probably spent 20 minutes there tops and that's with mum and dad trying to eek out the historical facts and a few minutes spent surveying the view from the top (Which unfortunately was mostly billboards and cranes).

We visited Kolossi castle as part of a trip and enjoyed the visit. The castle has a beautiful religious painting inside and you get a feeling for how it would have been used. Lovely views from the top of the castle after a climb up the circular steps. Worth a visit

I'm getting to like the way that Cyprus presents its history. There's enough information, but not overkill. Sites are presented as they are, with help to understand how they may have looked in their prime. But there is no commercial overkill. OK, so Kolossi is a slightly-later rebuild of a crusader-era castle, but the site and the remaining buildings are... More

Kolossi Castle is located out side of Limassol city but maybe worth to visit it. From the roof you can see the Limassol lake and sea. Do not forget to touch the huge tree inside the yard.
