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.

Kolossi Castle Reviews
Cheap ticket, free parking lot and a beautiful castle tower with a surrounding view. Well worth it for a short stop, if you don't expect a colossal castle. more »
Limassol is where you will find this neat historical site. It has 2 cute cafes right where you park and across the street is a beautiful orange grove. It is not a huge castle but it has access to the.... more »
Lovely castle in great condition, three floors with a neighbouring sugar mill and ruins dating back to 12th century. €2.50 entry per person but plenty of information boards and great views of the surrounding valleys from the roof. Stairs up can be steep, high and difficult to pass on. Not suitable for people who struggle with stairs or heights.
One of our favorite castles in Cyprus. Beautifully maintained and the old tree in the courtyard is stunning. Great stop if your on your way to Curium beach too
