must see

better in my opinion than Limassol Castle worth the entrance fee and you can take photos inside. The view from the top is awesome.

When the Templars left the middle east they stopped in Cyprus and based themselves in Kolossi. Like most Cypriot national attractions the entry cost is minimal and you are left to get a real feel for how they would have lived in the middle ages. Not over commercialised attraction and well worth a visit.

Nice example of the castles of the era although this was more of a luxury house than a full blown fortress. Great condition and nice views from the roof area , can't go far wrong at €2.50 ...

The castle is in stunning condition and is in a lovely setting and its history is amazing. Its history goes back many centuries and is well worth a visit. If you manage to climb to the top the views are fantastic. The coast is quite far but you can see from above the round area. There are 90 probably a... More

If you are interested in Cyprus history Kolossi Castle is the place you should visit. Of course, you can read what was happening hundreds years ago, but it is quite different and more exciting to see the history, to touch the ancient walls and imagine yourself being involved in that drama and tragedy of medieval time. The Castle is between... More

This Castle is small, as castles go, but was built by the Knights Templar (also known as the Knights of St John) in the 15th. Century. Basically it's a stone tower that tries to dominate the surrounds. It is not overly impressive, costs Euros 2.50 to visit, has some steep stairs to climb, little in the way of explanatory materials,... More

We stopped outside for photos. Very pretty, not sure what is inside. Take the time to walk two blocks to see the outside of old small church. Lots of cats

We visited the Castle as part of a tour. It cost 2.50 Euros to go inside the Castle but there isn’t really a lot to see. There are three floors and a lot of steps to climb with good views when you get there. However, I must admit our knees did suffer afterwards for a few days as it wasn’t... More

The castle is very small but still worth a visit as it provides fascinating insight into a bygone age. Still well preserved it is a shame only that we are not told more of its history and inhabitants
