It was really interesting to visit Kolossi Castle. you don't need to plan something special, just come there and find yourself 10 centuries back. The castle is extremely simple, but your imagination will help you to caught a piece of that historical period. Take kids, enjoy marvelous landscapes, spend a great time!

This castle is small but impressive, very well cared for and the free explanatory leaflet and explanatory boards are excellent. The small complex includes remains of a sugar mill. There is a winery and an attractive church nearby.

This great and enchanting castle is a must visit on your Limassol itinerary. Climb up the steep steps inside or simply soak in the atmosphere.

Good for a short stop, worth a detour. The remains of the castle which was the main base of the Knights Templar on Cyprus includes the sugar refinery which itself is quite impressive.

Another Historical site worth visiting on this beautiful Island in the Mediterranean. You will need a car though in order to visit. Set a quiet village of Kolossi. A nice little caf'e awaits you with refreshments after your tour round or stroll through the village.

Even after living in Cyprus for 4.5 years, I'd never actually made it to Kolossi castle until now. It was one of those places that I always thought I'd get around to seeing but never did. I guess this is partly due to the fact that there isn't very much else to see around the local vicinity so it isn't... More

Not a great deal to see but well preserved - 15 minutes is long enough for a look round. Views to the coast from the top of the castle.
