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.

Visited this castle on the way back to Pissouri from Limassol (after visiting Limassol Castle in the morning) and to be honest we liked it as much if not more than Limassol Castle. It was just 2.50 Euros (Adult Entry, Children are Free) to get in and the Castle has immediate impact as soon as you walk up to the... More

Three floors of empty rooms - beautiful views from the roof. Visit can be over in an hour. Not much to see, however the feeling of being in an ancient building is awesome. If you are limited on time, best to go to Kourion or afrodite rock.

The site itself is still having parts of the grounds excavated but once you are inside, its a little disappointing to only find a couple of original mozaics and then bare walls and... More

You get a false impression of the castle when you first see it from the outside but once inside quite a bit to explore and the views from the top are great with clear views in all directions over Limassol, the Salt Lake near Akrotiri and views extending towards the Troodos Mountains. Once out of the castle a bit of... More

Well looked after and good value for money. Well preserved and easy to imagine what it was like in earlier times.
