The history of this castle dates back to 1228, when Frederick the Second of Germany and his supporters imprisoned the hostages seized by Ibeline, the king regent of Cyprus. It is also said that it is an ancient Byzantine castle. This castle is also a witness for the marriage between king Richard and Queen Berengaria.
Today’s structure is mostly rebuilt under the Turkish domination (19th century) and also accommodates the Cyprus Medieval Museum.
