St. Solomon's Catacombs, Paphos

(2.9/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • It was amazing to see the structure still standing and accessible after so many centuries. Need to be careful climbing steps but its worth going into and its free! 
  • Against the background of other ancient objects are looked upon quite monotonous. It is better to walk in the park or go to the tombs, where much more interesting and poznavatel'nej

  • disappointing visit, very smelly, not well maintained with lots of rubbish, broken lighting so very poorly lit, glad it was free!
