Kolossi Medieval Castle

This well admired 15th century castle is situated in Kolossi village, 14km west of Limassol in the south of Cyprus. There have been indications that the castle we see today has been built on the site of an earlier castle from the 13th century.

The surrounding land around Kolossi castle played an important role in the past as it had been highly cultivated with sugarcane and vineyards, from which the famous Cypriot wine Commandaria was produced. The name ‘Commandaria’ originates from the headquarters of Kolossi – the ‘Grand Commanderie’.

Limassol is the main city in Cyprus for exporting and this dates back also to the middle ages when Limassol acted as the centre for exports of olives, cotton and sugar with the help of the fertile area around Kolossi castle.
