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.

Kato Paphos Archaeological Park reviews
If you're in Cyprus you should make sure you visit here. The site is vast, with not a lot of shade & no refreshment stops so make sure you visit in a cooler part of the day, wear a hat & sunscreen... more »
Some well preserved ruins and mosaics set in a large area. There is little shelter and it can get very hot, so bring plenty of water more »
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!!
