Great place to visit and plenty to see. Good on a rainy day. The stairs may be a problem for the infirm though. You get a great view from it too.

The castle building itself is well preserved with informative signs telling you about the building and pointing out the changes made throughout the centuries. As well as the original building, the old dungeons in the basement house a collection of fascinating... More

The castle and museum is right in the middle of Limassol in the old historic city, so it's easy to find and get to. It is surrounded by restaurants and a markets so it's a good day out. The castle is well maintained with signs and information, and is 3 floors (so there are steps - with railings). The roof... More

Great spot considering the diverse range of historical influence. Byzantine, Crusaders and Ottomans. Richard the Lionheart supposed to have been married in here. The sense of history is overpowering. The gem of Limassol.

The castle is a few minutes walk from the marina towards the town centre ...with museum style artefacts in the basement to 1st floor, along with access to the castle roof, this is well worth 30 minutes

Lots of stairs so be prepared for a work out, downstairs bit creepy with the grave stones! Amazing views from the roof and watch your head on the low roofing! Staff are a bit miserable and security guard tends to follow you around!

This is not just a castle! Its a museum too! Very fun to visit, most rooms are full with interesting artifacts, have fun exploring all the rooms, lovely view from roof-top, beautiful gardens. I always take my overseas visitors inside this castle. Highly recommend!
