About Kolossi Castle, Limassol

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

  • 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.

  • Lovely old castle near Limassol. The weather was great when we were there and the views from the top was also great. A restaurant nearby and the lavatories at the site were clean and hygienic. The entry free was also reasonable compared to visiting a castle anywhere else.

  • Castle is perhaps a bit of a grand way to describe this. Entrance price is 2.50 euros which perhaps might be a bit much for what is quite a short trip. The view from the top is nice although it is only accessible by quite a narrow spiral staircase so not advisable for anyone with physical difficulties.

  • This castle was originally a Knights' Template fortress and is steeped in history. It is well worth costing for the sense of restrained strength that it has and the feel for the times when it was occupied. The stairs to the roof are hard work but the views from the keep is well worth the effort so don't be put off. The grounds have been sympathetically prepared so you can get a good perspective from the ruins of how the supporting structures were laid out and how they worked.

  • Interesting place to spend some time. Great views from the top of the keep. Cheap entry and the toilets spotless, puts some of our places in England to shame.
