Worth a look - but mainly for military history

This small but ancient building mainly houses medieval relics relating to the fort's wartime history, so it covers quite a long period of history but focuses on a modest... read more

There have been lots of excavations to create Castle Square in front of the castle and the whole surrounding area is buzzing at night with cafes and restaurants. Of particular note is Maritza's traditional cafe with delicious desserts and teas which I highly recommend as it is not on TripAdvisor.

This small but ancient building mainly houses medieval relics relating to the fort's wartime history, so it covers quite a long period of history but focuses on a modest collection of graves, memorials and armour and weapons. The items are clearly labelled in English and Greek so you can see what they are. It's not a large building (if you... More

Be prepared for lots of stairs but worth the effort to learn something of the history of the island even up to the time when the Brits used it as a prison!

It's,like in larnaca a fortress. Little and entrance 4,5 euro for seeing finally not much. When you prefer not to throw away your money, the garden has old stones from ancient Greek pillars and an olive press from greek or Roman times.

Love this area, the culture ooouuzes out the castle and surrounding area. We went when it was midday and the heat and crowd got a little bit too much but visited again a few days later in the afternoon and was beautiful.

A must see! A great place to visit to see the Medieval Collection of the Cyprus Museum and to see the role in history that Cyprus played in the Crusades. Lots to read about and great artifacts to see.

The Castle is more like a large Fort. All parts are open for tourists to walk through and you can see the different ages in the changes floorpan. The price was very reasonable for admission and the staff spoke English and were helpful with questions. If you're a history buff you may want to read ahead a little about the... More

I found the visit interesting the previous time I was here, and I dropped in once again since I was in the area and I had some free time. I love visiting museums anyway! It houses the Medieval Collection of the Cyprus Museum. Its purpose was to guard and protect both the port and the city itself. The entrance fee... More

The history of the area all in one place. Most of the artefacts go back to 11-1200AD with some as old as 700ad.
