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
It was part of a TUI day trip, so we didn’t go just there specifically. The Castle is well kept and takes about 30 minutes to get around. We had some freshly squeezed orange juice in the café...

Kolossi Castle was a nice stop along our road trip to Paphos. The charm of this ancient fortification was unexpected but it had a rich history which was well explained on the signage around the site..... more

Unimaginatively preserved crusader castle. Decent view of not very much from the roof. An entertainingly narrow spiral staircase to get up there. Fireplaces remain intact. Otherwise, some impressively empty large rooms. I think our guide said Richard I came here and it was owned at one time by the Martini family (drinks, not guns). That's your highlights.
Really interesting place! It was really inspiring and amazingly beautiful. The prices were cheap too!!!! Only 2.50 euros per person and free for children. Everything was perfect! 5 stars! LOVE FROM BULGARIA 🇧🇬!!!!
