A World Heritage Site, Kato Paphos Archaeological Park features monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, including some of the finest mosaics in the Eastern Mediterranean. See remnants of Roman villas and fortresses, some of them with floors made of colorful stone, representing scenes from Greek mythology. Take a walk through the arid lands, over dunes, and among ruins, and look for monuments such as Ancient Odeon--a 2nd-century theater built entirely out of limestone blocks--and Saranta Kolones, which features remnants of a Byzantine castle destroyed in a 1222 earthquake.  Plan to visit Kato Paphos Archaeological Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Paphos attractions using our Paphos sightseeing planning app.

  • Very interesting place, full of ancient history, very calm. Our children were happy to explore all those tombs, especially the unexpected ways out of tombs.
  • Apart from the location and gorgeous wild flowers in spring, the mosaics are wonderful and stunningly intact. The entrance, in the heart of Paphos Harbour doesn't look as impressive as the cast site within. Just go!!
