Highlights of Kolossi
Kolossi Castle is 14 km west of Limassol and was once a crusader stronghold of great strategic importance during the middle ages. The present castle that we see day was built in 1454 by the Hospitallers on the site of the original castle dating from around 1210. The knights Templar also took possession of the castle for a while in the 1300's before it was handed back to the Hospitallers.
The Castle's secondary function was the store and production of sugar from local sugarcane, which was one of the major exports from Cyprus at the time.
Kolossi Castle is 125 km from Ayia Napa and it takes around 1 hour and 25 minutes to get there.
