  • The castle is a medieval fortress, inside little survived but like climbing walls and a ladder. I won't compare, yes it is not necessary for Cyprus place enough colorful beside the castle ruins of some picturesque old churches, there is a small part of the old town, perhaps, and everything. Very much liked Patisserie with Oriental sweets, but this is not about the Castle, this is a separate song!

  • Entry fee €2.50. Interesting fortifications which are supposed to be the inspiration for Shakespeare's Othello. The ramparts can be walked in part and there are views over the port. On the ground floor are some artefacts and poster boards describing the collaborative efforts of Greek and Turkish Cypriots to conserve this monument. There is a public toilet on site.
  • Good very informative. Excellent value for money. Worth a visit.
