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 .

  • Amazing mosaic floors (a few were covered which was disappointing but they were being protected). Bit of a trek around the grounds but well worth a visit.
  • Very interesting place to spend a few hours wandering around. The mosaics are stunning and are the highlight of the site in my opinion. Take some water with you when you are visiting as the area you are walking round is quite large and spread out
  • Amazing mosaics and other excavations from a range of peoids from Romans to Ottomans. Definitely recommend. Bonus tip, students go for free with a valid ID.
  • What an amazing day out. Don't rush and take your time to visit all of it. We'll worth the price of 4,5€
  • It is a vast area with many beautiful mosaics. The admission fee is 4.5 EUR and you can spend a whole afternoon there exploring the park.
