Kantara Castle (Greek: Κάστρο της Καντάρας Turkish: Kantara Kalesi) is a castle in Northern Cyprus. The exact date of its construction remains unknown, the most plausible theory being the Byzantine period. It combines Byzantine and Frankish architectural elements, became derelict in 1525 and was dismantled in 1560. It gave its name to the nearby Kantara monastery.For travelers who use our international travel planner, Trikomo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kantara Castle and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Quite an exciting road to gain access. Views of both coasts. Commanding position for a castle, obviously built to last!
