This castle was an important former Crusader stronghold, it was built in 1454 by the Hospitallers. The castle today consists of a single three-storey keep with an attached rectangular enclosure or bailey about 30 by 40 metres. It is a nice visit without the usual crowds.

Very small not much to see. However views from the top are ideal for taking photographs. Blink and you'll miss it. Not a place for children or disabled.

A very interesting castle with lots of history pertaining to Knights Templar and Richard the lion heart. However beware the small winding staircases that are very difficult to travers down when busy with people coming up as no hand rails and tiny footspace. However well worth the effort if you can do it

Along with many other historical attractions in the area, Kolossi is a must for those passionate about history. The castle is well preserved and easily accessible. Perhaps more information boards might be useful, but a leaflet is available for free at the entrance.

Just a few kilometers from the town and if you have a car is a nice drive. Not a huge castle, but it stands in full. The views from the top are amazing. Don't expect a lot of information from the available signs, so if you are not going with a guide, google it as there is a lot of... More

I visiting Kolossi castle in the morning on the way to Ancient Kourion and it was a nice, pleasant place to wander around for 30 minutes or so. There was only 1 other person visiting when I was there which was really nice. The grounds are small, it's essentially a 3 story 15th century tower. One of the rooms has... More

The Kolossi Castle is one on the many delights in Cyprus. It was used by the English in the crusades. It is not a must, but if you are in the area or on the route, it is worth a visit.

passes half an hour if you need your day filling not a lot in side the castle itself but really cheap to enter as most of Archaeological sites in Cyprus are. Kids liked running around.
