Kolossi Castle - Review
Perhaps there’s not much to see here but with a little knowledge of medieval battle tactics, you can fill in the blanks with your imagination. Classic battle tactics like pouring molten lead or boiling oil onto the heads of defenceless prisoners were practiced here. A drawbridge leads to the single remaining fortified tower house that had two chambers on the ground level and another two up a spiral staircase. At the very top, on the roof, are the battlements, from where you can look out over Limassol. There’s a nice elegance to the way the information is presented: very matter-of-factly, covering all the necessary historical points but without any unnecessary glamorisation. The castle is set right between a vineyard and some village houses, so the sights can’t really have changed much over time.

Kolossi Castle, Limassol Reviews
Had a 45min stop here on an excursion. Castle is on three floors, steep narrow stairs to 2nd floor. The castle rooms are very bare with little to see other than the empty rooms. In some ways that is part of its charm. Small area outside to explore. Plenty of parking and a decent cafe. There are also toilets here too.
What a super place to spend an hour or so. Beautiful castle, well maintained, fantastic views, amazing history. Large car park, friendly staff, good value. Lots of rooms to explore. Be careful on the spiral stairs - they are a bit tricky for little ones (common sense really!). One or two cafe's around the perimeter if refreshments needed.
Lot's of information about the Castle as you go round on info boards,wonder as you please no guide here. Take as long as you like to explore. Not somewhere you can spend more than a hour. We stopped off on route to Limassol on the "B" roads. For €2.5 worth a look.
Nice castle and nice surroundings but it gets very humid in this area. There is a cafe/shop over the road from the castle you can stop and get a drink and a bite to eat (the fresh orange juice is the best I have had in Cyprus). The toilets get very busy as a lot of tour buses stop here, if you stop use the toilets first before doing the castle tour otherwise you might not have time after before getting back on the tour bus.
Castle is very basic and empty. Could be better if the rooms were set up a little how they would of been. The mill outside is interesting and makes you wonder how the water was used. Lovely to sit in the bar next door and have a drink also.
