What people are saying:

Kolosi Castle is located about 14 kilometers west of Limassol, Cyprus. It was built in the 13th century. It is 21 meters high, square and 15 meters long. You can enter the castle through a suspension bridge at the gate. The castle retains medieval frescoes and a spiral staircase on the roof. This castle was once used as the final headquarters of the Knights Templar and was given by King Henry II of Cyprus. After the fall of Kolosi Castle, the Knights disbanded. The castle was later destroyed but was rebuilt. It is the best-preserved medieval castle in Cyprus and has become a famous attraction near Limassol.
