The castle is found among a fertile valley to the mouth of the river Kouris. There was immense sugar-cane, olive, cotton, locust-tree and cereal plantations as well as vineyards in this area in the old times.
The castle itself is a fine example of military architecture.
It is a construction of the 13th century and subsequently rebuilt in its present form in the middle of the 15th century.
The castle served as the Grand Commander of the Knights Templar and some years later as the headquarters of the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.
