The Karpaz Peninsula (Turkish: Karpaz), also known as Karpasia, Karpass, is a quite long, finger-like peninsula that is one of the most prominent geographical features of the island of Cyprus. Its farthest extent is Cape Apostolos Andreas, and it's major population centre is the town of Rizokarpaso (Turkish: Dipkarpaz). After 1974, followed the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus and Turkish occupation, the Turkish-Cypriot authorities officially changed its name to Kırpaşa. However, the change of the name is not recognized by the international community because the Turkish Cypriot authorities are authorities of an administration (the TRNC) which is not recognized by any country except Turkey.
The oldest report on the existence of the Castle of Limassol dates back to 1228 when Frederick the Second of Germany and his supporters sent to prison the hostages seized by Ibeline, the king regent of Cyprus. This Castle was likely to be an ancient Byzantine Castle or the one that took its place over the early Frankish period.
