Well worth a trip to Kolossi Castle if you're interested in history. We stopped here after passing sign for it on way from Kourion and glad we stopped for a look. There is a small admission fee, but worthwhile as you can get to go inside the castle which has three floors. However, not recommended for less mobile visitors as... More

We took our 10 year old to this, he loved it found it really interesting and loved walking up the castle to the fantastic views at the top. Advice hiring a car and going rather than via an organised trip to allow you to spend time needed to take it all in.

We went there with our two young kids and were very impressed. I didn't have high expectations but it was well worth the drive from Limassol. The castle is very well preserved and unspoiled by the usual "over load" of tourist paraphernalia you get in a number of European castles. It was simple enough to convey the history but had... More

Travelled here with my family for a peaceful walk around the castle, it is very nice and will pass an hour, a local shop just outside to sit and have a drink.

A Gothic Castle held strategic importance in the middle ages, Kolossi castle, used to be a crusader's stronghold. Very cool raw caslte, it has it's own sugar factory since it held large amount of it. the views from its roof to the surrounding area are amazing!

This Castle was one of my highlights.It took me a very long time to go through each and every room as there was just so much to take in. It was incredible to see how it had been set up as a museum with such a great collection of artifact. Do yourself and favour and check it out!

Nice place for kids. Not much to see inside, but view on the roof top is good. When you go early you will be the only one and than it is nice for pictures. When you go without a guide read first some information about the castle as it hasn't much info on the spot.

Always been desuaded to visit Kolossi Castle, mainly because it looks real small and uninteresting from pictures I have seen. I was wrong! I visited with a friend that wanted to see the castle and was very pleasantly surprised. If you felt the same way that I did, have a rethink. It's well worth €2 each.

The castle and chapel are very interesting mainly due to their architecture. In case one is in a hurry, the view from the outside is sufficient. The castle is empty from the inside but the view from the roof is very nice. It enroute from Limassol to Curium and worthwhile a brief stop. The coffeeshop outside the castle makes a... More
