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.

Nice museum inside the caste. The entry fee is quite cheap and you can go down the basement and up the roof. If you’re interested I recommend doing it.
Wasn't able to go inside. But walking around the perimeter was really cool. I'd love to go back when they're open.
A nice castle. The must-visit place in Limassol. Btw, there are not too many places to visit in Limassol.
Nice place. Good price. Not really a great view though.
Small castle, one of the few places in Limassol Old Town to see. Inside you will find a museum - armors, swords, cannons, muskets and interesting historical facts about the building.
