  • The site itself is extensive, but has easy access to all areas, could do with more information signsas you walk round. The museum in the old Manor House is very interesting, but not the easiest to get...  more »
  • I really like this place! I've been here three times in different years. In ancient times here and had Better visit the public! Pathos museums not on hot days to enjoy history! The museum itself is located in the former Manor House of Lusignan, which restored. And in the ancient times there was a sugar factory and the estate was surrounded by cane thickets near the Church (Sanctuary) of Aphrodite, built on the island for 12 centuries BC when the cult of Aphrodite , the goddess of love and fertility Temple was destroyed by the strong earthquake in 77godu. But the Romans, who were on the island at the time, built a new shrine even more luxurious and large sizes. Temple existed until the end of the 4 century a.d. and thousands of pilgrims from different countries have sought to come here in the fall after harvest to celebrate the day of wine and to participate in mass atrocities in accordance with local customs in honour of the goddess Aphrodite. And when they were outlawed pagan cults, the shrine ceased to exist. and black polished stone size 1 m phallic form-the main object of worship is located here in the Museum! Mosaic floors Leda and the Swan-unusually beautiful! Not everyone knows that the plot of a work of Homer Pigmaleon-taken from local legends! Be sure to visit Kukliju, it will take you not a full day!
