I came back here after thirty fives years and certainly the facilities have improved. It is a fairly small site so it should not take more than an hour. A very well preserved example of a Cypriot castle.

A very interesting and attractive site. Great views from the terrace at the very top. No furniture whatever so u get a good perspective of the room's sizes. Must see.

Government should try and make it something special. It smells bad as you get inside, no furniture inside like other castles i have visited in other countries.They should invest more on it.

Cyprus has a lot of history , every lane, street has some story. this is a castle built with very limited windows.there is a citrus fragrance when you enter the castle. the Hall is a maverous piece of construction. the orange juice served outside the castle is a must to drink

This is a Castle with an interesting history built more than 500 years ago and surviving real well, although with virtually no contents. There are excellent views from the top. You will get good photos of the Castle from outside the ticket office especially if there are no other people around. There is a good café/restaurant (Theo’s) nearby – not... More

There is no furniture in the castle and it's not for anyone who is unsure on there footing. To reach the different floors is a spiral stair case, very narrow and there is only one way up and down.

Cyprus is filled with lovely warm beaches, vineyards and mountains but some great historical places as well. Kolossi Castle is well worth the visit to see the Crusader castle and climb to the top for the view.

A former Crusader stronghold on the outskirts of Kolossi village. This beautiful castle is well worth visiting. It stands proud in the middle of a rural landscape and presents a fine example of military architecture. It is thought that the original castle was built by Frankish military in the 13th century. The present Castle was built in 1454 by the... More
