My only reason for stopping at the castle was the fact that I drove past a few times during my stay in Cyprus last week. I hadn't been here since my childhood and to be honest I've seen much bigger and better preserved castles in other countries. However, if you ignore the fact that there is not much to see... More

Easy to find.Was well worth the entrance fee as lots of things to see if you are interested in seeing ancient artafacts and learning the history of Cyprus and Limossol. Very good views from the top of the castle.

Kolossi castle is a great morning visit for families with children. The castle is well preserved and fun to explore. There are great views from the ramparts which are accessible via a spiral staircase (without hand rail!). There is plenty of car parking next to the castle. The café nearby looks reasonably nice but the coffee was dismal - worth... More

Fascinating to look around inside, and the views from the top are staggering. If you have a sense of history, you will feel it, but there's not much to see if you don't.

We were not here long but the building is interesting and the gardens are beautiful. We were fascinated by the lizards which were skittering everywhere.

Just west of Limassol,Kolossi castle is ok if you have a strong interest in Medievil castles. Its mostly square,with 3 rooms on each level. There are a few remains outside the actual walls and an old Argentinian tree! Next to the castle is an old mill,partly preserved. 2-50 euros to see the inside of the castle,but its empty inside,and lacks... More

We visited here on route from the airport to our accommodation; it was sunny but very windy! It is a typical, modern marina with lots of private yachts and a fairly decent array of restaurants and bars.

It is not worth going on the purpose there but if you are passing by - stop for a moment to have a walk and see remains of the Cyprus style castles.

Castello is what we all love. This ancient and full of history building draws our attention to it. For a moment we can touch, for example, the life in 13th century. We can imagine how people lived and survived. It always teach us something or at least makes you wonder...

This was a great place to visit the narrow winding stairs to the battlements is unbelievable. The tour guide Chris gives you lots of information about its history and you can also have coffee if you wish.
