Tour the ancient passageways and tombs of St. Solomon's Catacombs, the remains of an underground church with 12th-century frescoes and a holy water site. Some researchers have shown that the area was used as a burial place during the Hellenistic era. View the dark, humid chamber where people prayed many centuries ago (and some still do). Look for a large tree that grows from the structure's walls: tying a ribbon around its branch will improve your health, according to a local legend. The lack of historical data for this site makes it a place of mystery, and a special spot for the locals.

St. Solomon's Catacombs reviews

Bottom chamber currently flooded but water very clear so difficult to see until you step in it! No attendant, no warning tape or signs. Be careful more »
A solemn historical site that is adorned with wishes and thoughts of special meaning. It’s easy to get to from the main road.
We visit here every time we visit Paphos, mainly because it's free but it's well worth it. If you walk down the main road from the old town to the harbour it's on the left hand side just past the king's mall shopping centre. There isn't any information there but it's worth a visit as the caves that have been carved out are incredible, do yourself a favour and visit
