Castle · Military Facility
The robust cubical Kolossi Castle represents a Gothic military structure of the Middle Ages, with a Luisignan coat of arms carved into its walls. Originally built around 1210, the exact edifice that you can see today was completed in 1454. Some of the 13th-century fragments are still at the site. Standing 21 m (69 ft) tall, the castle contains storerooms at the ground floor, a kitchen on the second floor, and living quarters in the upper section. At one time the complex also featured sugarcane production facilities. Look south to see a courtyard building and ruins of what's thought to have been a stable or storehouse. Make Kolossi Castle a centerpiece of your Limassol City vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Limassol City trip planner.

  • Interesting history and structure, great view over the surrounding area. Couple of cafes nearby. Free parking across the road. A great spot to stop for a few hours if passing by.
  • On our way to the monastery in Troodos we saw a little sign and decided to stop and see, we were happy for the decision. Small but nice historical site. Not a must visit but on your way have a look. Location easy to find, etrance 2.50€, clean,great maintenance, bit if a problem for disabled, great for children but keep an eye. Nice welcoming. Signs in English as well.
