Been to several forts on our trip, but this one is more like a real castle. Very interesting, nothing much left inside and laid out over three floors accessible by a spiral staircase. Good views from the top. A few ruins in the grounds including an old sugar mill and an old tree. Don't miss out on buying the day... More

Very interesting visit, and the lady in the 'little wooden shop who makes all her own goodies was the icing on the cake'

Big square Castle in good condition positioned with ruins of a brewery next door. Reasonably priced entrance but difficult to get to unless you have your own transport or are on an excursion. A small cafe with a very warm welcome and a lovely hot chocolate.

My son loves castles and history and as such we had to go to this castle whilst on holiday. The children and even my wife enjoyed this castle and the view of the surrounding countryside from the battlement. A big thumbs up from us.

The castle is a good trip out. Good walk round and visitor friendly. The views from it were great and the architecture and information on it all were very informative.

Kolossi Castle is situated 11kms west of Limosoll so is worth a short visit if you are travelling from Paphos. It was built in the 15th century on the ruins of a former fortress dating from the early 13th century and some of these ruins can still be seen. The castle belonged to the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem... More

If you are looking to spend an hour browsing around this is worth a visit. Lots of old and interesting things to see and fine views from the top.

I lived at RAF Akrotiri for two years and passed this castle every day without giving it a thought. On the other hand I would drive several hours to see other sites of antiquity in other parts of the island. Then I returned to Cyprus and took an interest in the historical period of the Crusades; THAT's when I realized... More
