The fort
Oct 2021 • Family
Really not sure how can someone come to pass us and not go inside this place at least 1. We all see you from outside but have another one inside it was used as a jail before then as a store room but one has to use ones imagination to see this place in its prime. A real shame not to go and even just for the part of saying that you went inside.

Nice testimony of military construction
Oct 2021
This fortress is well preserved.
It is small, but gives a very good impression how these defence systems operated in the Ottoman period.

You can climb the stairs all up to the top and enjoy a beautiful view over Kato Paphos.

Harbour views
Sep 2021 • Couples
Historical site only €2.50 entry per adult. So not expensive. But not a lot to see either. Inside its set up like a tourist information for Cyprus. Otherwise there are some decent views of the harbour from the roof. So as a minimum worth it for the snaps. For the price, it is worth a look.

Whistle stop visit to cheap attraction
Sep 2021
I spent a lot of time around Paphos harbour so visited the Castle. Entry was Euros 2:50. Good value for what was a quick visit. Not much to see inside the castle, narrow staircase leading to the outside which provides for great views of the harbour and coastline. Well worth 15 minutes of your time.

Good job entry is cheap!
Aug 2021 • Couples
If this didn't cost only €2.50 then I would feel extremely short changed! It is not a castle but a small fort consisting of two lower chambers and a roof with a view over the sea and harbour. That's it. An attempt has been made to make it worth a visit by adding some crappy 'art' made of litter downstairs, but they needn't have bothered.

Good thing? You have a decent view from the top.

It's a classic case of exaggerated marketing in Cyprus to make things sound attractive to tourists (Coral Bay: no coral, Blue Lagoon: a bay, Tombs of the Kings: no kings, Aphrodite's Baths: a smelly cave with pigeons and poo!)

Better to save your money and visit the archaeological site nearby instead.

Nothing but the view
Aug 2021 • Family
Nothing but a view. They could have upgraded more with signs to the xplain the part of the castle, but it's just empty.
Only the view is nice , but that's it 15 minutes is all it takes.

Small castle without much to see
Aug 2021 • Couples
I would not say this is a completely worth visit since it barely has anything to see inside. The castle is super small, the only thing worth seeing is the views of the city + the beach from the roof. Besides that, nothing worth paying 2.5€ for.

Interesting fortress
Jul 2021
More of a fortress than a castle, but it's position jutting out into the sea in Paphos's harbour is incredibly atmospheric.

It's also an interesting historical building in itself which can be visited.

Nicely positioned harbour sentinel
Jun 2021
I this worth seeing? Yes.
Is it a castle? Well, no if compared to the castles of Britain, Ireland, Germany or Portugal. In all honesty, it is little more than a defesive tower similar to the keep of a fullt fledged castle. However it has a good position in the herbour and can hardly be avoided by anyone visiting Paphos.

Stunning Harbour and Castle
Jan 2021
A stunning Harbour, the Castle looks incredible lit up at night. The harbour is clean and pretty and hosts lots of places to eat and drink. Ice cream and juicing available along the stretch. At the Harbour Castle you can continue another lovely long walk along the coast. Wide clear paths take you for a stunning enjoyable 1 hour walk. Highly recommended to visit this stunning area of Paphos.
