Crusader castle atmosphere

Crusader castle atmosphere

Paphos, Cyprus

Kolossi Castle is a former Crusader stronghold 14 kilometres west of the city of Limassol. A fine example of military architecture originally constructed in the13th century and subsequently rebuilt in its present form in the middle of the 15th century. It served first as the Grand Commandery of the Knights Templar, and after the fall of Acre in 1291 for some years, as the headquarters of the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.
