Right in the middle of the old town , well presented well worth a look , good history ref the King & Queen of England and possibly the oldest olive tree in the world in the grounds , worth a photo in itself.
The Castle was within walking distance from our hotel so we went in for a look around. It was quite eerie seeing some of the small rooms and the skeleton minus head and hands.

This is lovely small castle centred in the middle of Limassol's entertainment district. It costs 4.50 Euro to enter and contains quite a few artefacts from armour, 4th Century masonry and a headless skeleton. The view from the rampant allows a wide-ranging vista of Limassol. Everything can be seen in about 30 minutes.
We visited Limassol Castle early afternoon. It's a rectangular shaped building housing a medieval museum. Around 4.5 euro to get in. Spent around 45 mins to an hour looking at the exhibits and around the outside of the castle. Great views from the top of the castle. Worth the entry fee!
Very interesting. Well presented, full of fascinating artefacts. All well explained without getting too wordy. The two guys at the admissions desk were very entertaining (and knowledgable) too.
