The earliest account of the Limassol Castle dates back to 1228. As well as chambers and stretching corridors, it also houses a large basement that has undergone extensive refurbishment and decoration. There are basilicas dating back to the Early Christian occupation, Byzantine monuments, and structural features that bear medieval hallmarks. Limassol Castle is a veritable time capsule of history’s great empires and the vibrant tapestry of the island’s history. This is just one example of the countless, gorgeous monuments embellishing the Cypriot coast.
