Paphos Harbour Castle, Paphos

(2.2/5 based on 2,200+ 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.

  • Beautiful harbour, various locations, many stores to shop and to buy souvenirs at reasonable prices. Plenty of benches for enjoying the sea, parking. Beautiful at sunset
