“"A very strong castle"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Built in the 13th Century and restored by the Turks around 1570, the castle is in a commanding harbour side position and for a very small fee, you can explore the rooms and chambers. Unfortunately, there is very little information so take a good guide book with you. The steps up to the roof are very steep but the views over the harbour and Paphos are well worth the climb!
Note that it seems to be closed at lunchtimes.

“Small castle but worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The castle is on the harbour wall. It's only a small castle but from the top you get good views across the harbour

“A Tower of a Castle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

More a fortified fort / tower one of 2 built to protect the harbour approaches, cheap to enter, not a great deal to see inside. Great views from the top.
