Paphos The Town of Aphrodite
Paphos, a city rich in history, is a gem of Western Cyprus. The city's existence traces back to the Neolithic period, claim archaeologists. Believed to be the birthplace of Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, Paphos proudly boasts the remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs that belong to Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. Such exceptional architectural and historic value is an ornament to the city that is included in UNESCO's list of world heritage as a natural and cultural treasure. Paphos, roughly divided into Old Paphos and New Paphos, is also famous for its sun-kissed beaches. Paphos was valued as a major port and the capital of Cyprus during Roman times. Later when the British colonized the island, the city started losing its value especially after Nicosia gained importance. Today, this small harbour is slowly and steadily emerging as an attractive tourist destination.
Located on the edge of Paphos harbour, this castle is one of the most classifiable landmarks of Paphos. It has attracted a number of archaeologists to excavate and investigate its past, as it dates back to the Roman era. The Byzantine fort, originally built to protect the harbour was destroyed in the earthquake of 1222. It was then rebuilt by the Lusignans in the thirteenth century and has seen few more rebuilding in the years ahead till date. It currently serves as a background for the annual open-air Paphos cultural festival, which takes place in September.
Aphrodite's Rock Petra Tou Romiou (Birthplace of Aphrodite) :
Named after the Greek Goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, the rock located between Limassol and Paphos is believed to be sacred. The legend tells a tale that this is the point where Aphrodite emerged from the sea in a surge of amazing sea foam in 1200 BC and she herself choose this rock as the ideal location to begin her life as a mortal.
Tombs of the Kings:
A large necropolis burial ground lying about two kilometres north-west of Paphos harbour in Cyprus is listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Many of these underground tombs, date back to the 4th century BCE, are sculpted out of solid rock. Believed to be the burial sites of Paphitic aristocrats and high officials, some of the tombs have frescoed walls and Doric columns.
