At the edge of Paphos Seafront walkway, the robust, cube-shaped Paphos Harbour Castle served the Byzantine Empire, the Lusignans, the Ottomans, the Greeks, and the English. The medieval castle was rebuilt twice--once after an earthquake in 1222 and again at the end of the 16th century. It also served as a storage area for salt. Enter the castle by crossing an old bridge over a small pond, and then climb the stairs inside to reach the top. From here you'll get some of the best views of the seafront and the Mediterranean Sea.

Paphos Harbour Castle Reviews

Paphos Castle is TINY. It's more of a Fort than a castle and you can tour the whole place in 10 minutes. But you won't! Because once you reach the top the views are breathtaking. You'll want to spend a good while taking it all in. On two sides the castle overlooks Paphos Harbour while on the others it's the sea. The entrance fee is only €2.50 per person and children go free. Bear in mind it is not wheelchair or pushchair friendly and there are some very steep and narrow stairs to climb.
Beautiful castle to see, definitely worth going to! The castle has been renovated and protected beautifully, with lighting making the features stand out. The upper level is lovely to have a higher view of Pathos from. Would recommend to all!
