Seen a lot of action, this castle has. What you see today is not really what it used to look like when it was first built. A 4th century Christian basilica once stood here, and the fort was built over it. Right from when it’s construction finished, the castle was attacked and attacked again, taking much structural damage till the Ottomans conquered in the 14th century. When the Venetians recaptured the castle the governor had the castle torn down. Then Ottomans came back, took over once more and incorporated what remained of the castle into an even stronger defence. It currently houses the Medieval Collection of the Cyprus Museum. One important historical event of the place is the marriage of Richard the Lionheart to Queen Berengaria. Most of what’s to see here is pottery, utensils and small arms. There’s a nice square outside the castle surrounded by excellent restaurants and bars. It’s a nice place to relax.

  • Best place to buy souvenir, there is a big souvenir shops at the roundabout selling very nice shells for who are interested. This place is close to Marina. One if the best fish restaurant ( in my idea)is also located at this area.

  • In the summer it's incredibly hot inside. The castle is quite small, and there are only two levels to be visited. On top, you may get to see a view of Limassol, but the walls are quite high thus the "view" is reduced.

  • If you are in Limassol, definitely worth seeing an hour will cover it pretty well and it is pretty cheap. Near the old port, lots of good bars and restaurants nearby so you can incorporate it into a day trip without a lot of walking.

  • A small castle keep that houses the arciological museum. The latest ottoman building is built on top of older structures. They have very little focus on the building... And that's what I wanted to see. No audio guide, no placards, almost seem like they ignored the structure and focused only on the collection. €4.5 to get in. Maybe good if you are more into artifacts, they have some cool stuff. But if you want to learn about the castle history you risk getting disappointed.
