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.

  • 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.

  • Another great castle that I visited. There were 3 floors showing the main hall and I think one was a place of worship. The view from the roof top was incredible! There was a sugar mill but it was being restored when we went there. An aqueduct was visible too. Entrance fee is 2.5€

  • Kolossi Castle is a charming little place to visit and look around where you will be able to get a few nice photographs. There are public toilets in the grounds which were very clean and tidy. There is a car park opposite the castle and there is no charge to park there. There is also a small cafe and a shop should you need anything to eat or drink. Entrance into the castle is very cheap.

  • Interesting medival castel with remains of the fortification and an attached sugar mill. Well preserved and a nice garden attached. One can almost feel how the Johanniter used to live here. There are a small cafe and a restaurant near by and lots of parking. Interesting for kids and adults who are interested in castles and knights

  • interesting place to visit. there is nice wine museum near it. so you can visit both places in one trip.
