Kourion (Curium), Limassol

(4.7/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Wander into Ancient Roman and Byzantine ruins at Kourion (Curium) for a look at the remains of houses, monuments, markets, baths, and an intact 3,500-seat theater. Although the site had been inhabited in Neolithic times from five millennia BCE, the town is believed to date back to the 13th century BCE. It supported an uprising against Persia in the 4th century BCE and was used by Alexander the Great. See mosaic floors from the 3rd and 4th centuries CE, private residences of the rich dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries CE, and a 5th century CE early Christian basilica at the site.

  • Very vast site full of ancient ruins & mosaics. Helpful signs next to the sites explaining what you are seeing & what was here. The Earthquake House & Roman public baths were personal highlights. It's...  more »
  • I made a stop in the course of my trip here. The excavations are extensive. I've seen only the theatre and a House, but the map indicated that there is still much more. Unfortunately no longer was my schedule. The theater is almost complete and the acoustics are still top. Impressed me the most the mosaics in the House... Not a must but if there is, you should make a detour.

  • One of the most beautiful monuments in Limassol. It has a spectacular view. Thoroughly enjoyed wandering amongst the ruins. There could have been a little more information given for those not on tours.
  • For those who love ancient history and amazing views. Dobremu Definitely worth a visit.
  • Entrance 4,5 euro, students -free. Worth all the money. There is nice amphitheatre, lots of history in whats left out of old roman buildings and whats most important - everything is on a beautiful mountain where you can take stunning photos. Very nice place!
  • Nicely preserved and restored historical site. Beautiful seaview. Restroom and souvenir shop available.
  • There is so much ANCIENT Sites!! Your gonna need an hour atleast to get fully satisfied.
