Kolossi Castle, Limassol
Categories: Ruins, Castles, Tourist Spots
The robust cubical Kolossi Castle represents a Gothic military structure of the Middle Ages, with a Luisignan coat of arms carved into its walls. Originally built around 1210, the exact edifice that you can see today was completed in 1454. Some of the 13th-century fragments are still at the site. Standing 21 m (69 ft) tall, the castle contains storerooms at the ground floor, a kitchen on the second floor, and living quarters in the upper section. At one time the complex also featured sugarcane production facilities. Look south to see a courtyard building and ruins of what's thought to have been a stable or storehouse.
