A fabulous timing when friends from Sweden needed a break right when we're enjoying a two week Easter holiday. We saw Kolossi and the old crusader castle there.
The Kolossi castle wasn't particularly crowded. A good thing, I guess, about sight seeing off season. The castle was also popular among our kids. Perhaps mostly because of the yard where they played some secret games.
If you visit Kolossi Castle, remember to keep an eye on the steps indoors as most of the stairs aren't that well protected.
At a nearby church some of us lit a few candles for our late greek/cypriot grandma and grandpa's. It had some fascinating old paintings on the walls and the roof.
While wandering around the area I was reminded about a nearby house we had been considering while house hunting. Being a city girl I'm happy though we ended up in the middle of Limassol town.
