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

Kolossi Castle was built 1210 for Knights of the Order of St John of Jerusalem. A former Crusader stronghold, it held a strategic importance during the Middle Ages. Later, used for sugar production.

Colossi Castle is a small castle which is accessible by bus from Limassol, but there is nothing else within the area of interest. Half an hour is all that is needed to visit this site.

We stopped off at Kolossi Castle on the way to a day out at Paphos, as it is en route from our hotel near Limmasol. It's about 90+ steps to the top of the tower at the castle, which commands a pretty good view of the neighbourhood, and the coast for many miles. It really only consists of the tower.... More

The castle is in stunning condition and the views from the top are amazing. Very steep steps so prepare yourself! Toilets were also clean & well maintained. We went for a drink at the cafe next to the castle which I would also recommend. Theo who owns it grew up around the corner from the castle & couldn't be more... More

Well sign posted from the main road, good parking. Costs 2.5 euro to enter. Staff were friendly and helpful. An excellent example of a medieval crusader castle. Small but well preserved, a steep spiral staircase takes you to the roof battlements which have commanding views over the surrounding countryside. There are good story/information boards at all the appropriate places. Good... More
