The Limassol castle is not huge but is steeped in history and the exhibits are well presented. Famously known as the place where King Richard (the Lionheart) married Berengaria in 1191 a.d. You should allow about one hour to tour the castle.

If someone wants to have a good relaxing break after a hard day at work the only thing that he or she has to do is go at the Castle square and have a coffee ☕ or something to eat and have a great time with friends. It feels up the batteries for next day. You can also visit the... More

Or at least for my 2 year old granddaughter it always will be! Solid piece of local history in the old town and as you would expect, great views from on top. A little expensive for what's on offer but overall worthwhile.

It is a typical castle in the middle of a square surrounded with restaurant. Indeed it is large but the basic features are there. Also you get a good view of Limassol city centre

Very well preserved. I strongly advice to climb up to top floor for a beautiful view of Limassol and the sea.

While the castle itself is a little small, the area surrounding and what it has to provide certainly isn't. If you are visiting Cyprus and have time to spare and learn about Limassol's history then the castle itself is worth a short visit, as you can explore the inside and read about its history. The surrounding area is full of... More

Worth an hour so in the cool soaking up some of the medieaval history of Cyprus. Small castle over around four storeys with good views from the top. Apparently reconstructed many times but the mix of ancient building and museum exhibits was just right for an hour or so.

The castle is a really place to visit. The area is full of resturants, and environment is great. We came there quite early, but the place becomes more crouded after 11. The castle itself is also nice, and the kid were quite excited to visit it from the inside. Anyway, with kid you can spend there no more then a... More
