Small but Fun

Good value for money, cheap entrance fee (2.50€ pp). Doesn't take too long to explore, but a fun and interesting stop if you like old buildings and nice views.

It's just a shell with only one painting on one wall! Other than this there wasn't much else to see our guide was very good but you don't need anymore than 10 minutes there.

Well restored castle, but definitely not as awe inspiring as Buffavento or St Hilarion castle. Worth a visit especially if you want to understand more about the agricultural/wine production history of the area

This is a lovely castle with an interesting, original-looking interior, and a brilliant view from the top. This is all in a peaceful and romantic surrounding. Very much enjoyed, one of the top experiences in Cyprus.

There are fantastic views from the top of the castle, and the price is very reasonable. Great for kids to run around.

Visited the castle with my daughter and a friend from Egypt, it was very cheap for entrance, €2.50 and free for children. Our friend was most impressed with the castle and the history behind it. The castle looks lovely and you get a nice view from the top , this was the first part of three places we visited which... More

We caught the bus from Limassol to visit Kolossi Castle (number 17 from the Old Hospital bus station). It was a pleasant trip out of Limassol and the castle was quite picturesque and well preserved with an interesting history. We also enjoyed watching all the little lizards sitting in the sun around the castle.

Did you know that the name of Commandaria wine is given from this castle? The actual name of the castel is Commandaria and not Kolossi. I was amazed learning all these info during my visit at the unique monument.

Fantastic castle with amazing history. It has been used as a palace rather than a fortress for most of its life so it is in remarkable condition.

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
