Paphos Harbour Castle, Paphos
(2.2/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
At the edge of Paphos Seafront walkway, the robust, cube-shaped Paphos Harbour Castle served the Byzantine Empire, the Lusignans, the Ottomans, the Greeks, and the English. The medieval castle was rebuilt twice--once after an earthquake in 1222 and again at the end of the 16th century. It also served as a storage area for salt. Enter the castle by crossing an old bridge over a small pond, and then climb the stairs inside to reach the top. From here you'll get some of the best views of the seafront and the Mediterranean Sea. Work out when and for how long to visit Paphos Harbour Castle and other Paphos attractions using our handy Paphos vacation planner.

  • This castle is located in the port, where we went for a walk almost every day. In General-nothing special, but the view from him striking, especially at sunset! Beside him on the ground, apparently often hang out newlyweds. One of the weddings, judging by the Celts and the bagpipes from Scotland, we watched. They staged near the Castle photo shoot. There is another interesting figure of a girl in stone-beautifully, but who is that we don't understand.

  • Excellent way to get around and learn about the history of Paphos and the harbour is on a segway tour.The harbour itself is very nice. The castle is open for you to look in but not worth a look as not...  more »
  • To say much ado about nothing would be a bit unfair as this attraction does not set out to be something that it's not. That said there is not a lot here, certainly a lot less than the tombs of the Kin...  more »
