Kato Paphos Archaeological Park, Paphos

4.5
A World Heritage Site, Kato Paphos Archaeological Park features monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, including some of the finest mosaics in the Eastern Mediterranean. See remnants of Roman villas and fortresses, some of them with floors made of colorful stone, representing scenes from Greek mythology. Take a walk through the arid lands, over dunes, and among ruins, and look for monuments such as Ancient Odeon--a 2nd-century theater built entirely out of limestone blocks--and Saranta Kolones, which features remnants of a Byzantine castle destroyed in a 1222 earthquake.  Plan to visit Kato Paphos Archaeological Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Paphos attractions using our Paphos sightseeing planning app .

  • The Park aufjedenfall is a must-have in Paphos, really very impressive to see. Be it the ancient ruins, mosaics or the lighthouse. Very spacious, so you can spend many hours here and it should also include. In addition, the admission for students is free :-)

  • The inclusion of the Kato Pafos archaeological site in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1980 was the starting point for the creation of a General Plan whose aim would be primarily to protect and maintain the archaeological remains, as well as to promote them and provide comprehensive information to visitors. Kato Pafos archaeological Park includes sites and monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, while most remains date to the Roman period. The marvellous mosaic floors of four Roman villas from the impressive epicentre of the finds. The complex includes other important monuments, such as the Asklipieion, the Odeion, the Agora, the "Saranta Kolones" (Forty Columns) Fortress, the "Limeniotissa" Ruins of early Christian Basilica and the "Tombs of the Kings".  
  • I was expecting more especially that one of the main attractions is closed, only the House of Aion
