Tombs of the Kings, Paphos

3.9
See Tombs of the Kings, an ancient burial site of Hellenistic and Roman administrative officers and distinguished people, and their families. Just steps from the sea, the site has a typical Eastern Mediterranean feel to it, with small sand dunes, low grass and bushes, and palm trees. Take a self-guided tour among the ruins and enter the atriums carved into natural rock to see niches in the walls that were used for burials. Used between the 3rd century BCE and the 4th century CE, the site features Doric pillars and architectural styles from Alexandria, Delos, Pergamon, and Priene.

  • Well worth a visit. Need good footwear. Kids will love exploring too. €2.50 entry. Well worth it. Visit later in day as cooling and fantastic sun sets for more atmosphere. Toilets at entrance but bring own water.
  • Very beautiful takes you to the past feel awe of the place. Located on a large area of ​​land and the end of the cemetery bordered by the sea. More care and safety are needed, since most graves are underground and children are vulnerable to fall and there are no warnings of falling. Entry to the place is € 2 which is a fair price. From the inside of the cemetery, I enjoyed a 💐💐very amazing visit
  • The entrance fee is only €2.50 and there are plenty of tombs to walk around and explore. Would've happily paid for an audio tour or something similar. The guide book is a bit over descriptive of the tombs without adding much else to the experience.
  • Another gem of a place in Cyprus. As with other places the entrance belies the fact there are acres of grounds with numerous tombs of varying ages and designs. All are fascinating. Some well preserved, others a shadow of what they were. Tombs 3, 4 and 5 are well worth the visit alone with subterranean columnated rooms open to the sky with empty tombs cut into the rock walks. Well worth a visit.
  • Very impressive place, not only because of cultural and historical reasons but also because nature apparently is allowed to go its natural way. Plants are growing into the stones and take their part in destroying the structures. Take some hours to explore and enjoy the area.
