Paphos Harbour Castle, Paphos

3.1
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.

  • Walked to the harbour but unfortunately the castle was having some work done so couldn't go inside. It is a lovely Castle, but plenty to look at and lots of coffee stops.  more »
  • Nothing special, only the view from the second floor was fantastic and it’s cost 2.50€ per person. Enjoy 😉  more »

  • it says castle here but its really a fort - and then again why it is even called a fort is not quite clear - the only thing worth looking at around this place - if you are wondering around the harbour area and feel you need to get out of the heat a little and not have to sit in a restaurant for it, then you can buy a ticket and get in - nothing much to look at - but it will pass your time for at least 30 minutes or so - a little wind on the top is good - little better views around
  • Great place to visit very historic, careful with small children but is family friendly (we visited with our 3 Yr old). Beautiful view of the harbour (good location to launch a drone).
