#6 of 9 in Historic Sites in Limassol
The complex of palaces, public baths, and temples at Amathus represents one of the oldest ancient towns of Cyprus. The earliest detected settlement at the site dates to the second millennium BCE, or the earliest Iron Age. Today, you can observe ruins that are linked to the Greeks, Persians, and Romans, among other ancient civilizations. Walk among millennia-old crumbling structures and gaze at pillars that once supported lavish palaces. See the former acropolis with a finely preserved monumental stone cistern.

  • Aphrodite's temple - despite in ruins, absolutely worth visiting if you're in Limassol. Ethereal mark of an old civilization that used to be a cradle of the modern world.
  • Nice nature, view(from the hill), arheological remains. Quite and relaxing place due to the fact that it is not very turistic. I suggest to visit it when the weather is good.
  • Nice views, little explanations.
  • Lovely views and interesting ruins.
  • Very interesting but needs better information signs about the objects.
