St. Solomon's Catacombs, Paphos
(2.9/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Tour the ancient passageways and tombs of St. Solomon's Catacombs, the remains of an underground church with 12th-century frescoes and a holy water site. Some researchers have shown that the area was used as a burial place during the Hellenistic era. View the dark, humid chamber where people prayed many centuries ago (and some still do). Look for a large tree that grows from the structure's walls: tying a ribbon around its branch will improve your health, according to a local legend. The lack of historical data for this site makes it a place of mystery, and a special spot for the locals. To visit St. Solomon's Catacombs on your trip to Paphos, use our Paphos holiday planner.

  • not a large site by any means and only takes about 4-5 minutes to visit. 10 mins walk up road from kato pafos. 
  • The catacombs could be interesting without all these plastic bags hang everywhere, as an offering which we want, that is disgusting looks on the 6 th continent to see if we're in the corner

  • Best to book sea trips in the Harbour, cheaper than Hotel Rep and more destinations, will cater for all age groups, excellent service
