Create an itinerary including Kolossi Castle
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.

  • This a great place to visit and look around the grounds. The spiral staircase leads up to a great view at the top of the castle. There are information signs to explain the rooms. Entrance fee €2.50...

  • Beautiful medieval castle and garden, be sure to climb to the top for a great view! Fun fact: the Cyprus-UK border is only a few feet away from the castle, it passes through the middle of the parking lot. There is also a border marker nearby(there are no border checkpoints or signs though)
  • 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.
