Tombs of the Kings, Paphos

3.9
See Tombs of the Kings, an ancient burial site of Hellenistic and Roman administrative officers and distinguished people, and their families. Just steps from the sea, the site has a typical Eastern Mediterranean feel to it, with small sand dunes, low grass and bushes, and palm trees. Take a self-guided tour among the ruins and enter the atriums carved into natural rock to see niches in the walls that were used for burials. Used between the 3rd century BCE and the 4th century CE, the site features Doric pillars and architectural styles from Alexandria, Delos, Pergamon, and Priene.

  • Beautiful expansive complex. Unfortunately we were there in midsummer and since there are hardly any shade places necessarily think of water. Admission is very cheap at 2.50€ per person. Is definitely worth a visit.

  • Killed an hour, it’s a once in a lifetime thing, for €2:50 it’s okay, but you wouldn’t go back again. We were surprised you could actually walk on the site, normally it’s all roped off.  more »

  • The entrance fee was very cheap, the site is massive and the tombs are impressive. My only criticism is that it would be nice to have more information both in the tombs that have external info boards and some information on some of the larger less intact monuments. Great for an hour or twos fun. P.S. make sure you take water, sun cream and breathable clothing - there isn't much shade
  • Great place to explore if you are interested in ancient ruins. I'm particularly pleased with the photographs I took. I wouldn't recommend going on a extremely hot day as there is little shade from the sun and there isn't anywhere to purchase drinking water. Amazing place regardless
