Artist's Description

This small medieval castle situated near the old harbour in Limassol on the island of Cyprus was built by the Byzantines around 1000 AD.

Around the same period, a chapel was also built there. Richard the Lionheart is supposed to have married his fiancée Princess Berengaria of Navarre on this site after her ship was grounded nearby in 1191 as she accompanied him to the Third Crusade, on his way to Holy Land.

The Castle was used as a prison, between 1790-1940.

The castle now serves as a medieval museum.
