The wall paintings are very good. The place has been reconstructed but retains its atmosphere. It is worth a trip.

This nicely preserved castle which dates back to the era of crusaders carries an interesting history. It is a ten minutes away from Limassol and is worth visiting.

There is a lot to see although the castle is basically empty. The view from the top is excellent and there are some markings left from Crusader times. There is also a fine fresco of the crucifixion on the first floor.

A lovely castle situated in the village of Kolossi with ample car parking spaces. This is steeped in history and worth reading up on before visiting. Have a look in the small church near the site. There is a small cafe run by a very...More

Nice, received high ranked and quite disappointing. It held great strategic importance in the Middle Ages as it contained large facilities for the production of sugar from the local sugarcane, one of Cyprus's main exports in the period. Nowadays, one more item on the list....More
