About this location
The Paphos District
Paphos is one of the most beautiful and ancient towns of Cyprus. The charming west coast town of Paphos focuses around an attractive little harbour whose picturesque open air fish restaurants line a quay side of bright fishing boats and pleasure craft. Wherever one treads in Paphos they will come across its glorious history which dates back thousands of years from when the goddess Aphrodite emerged from its seas. This is a truly flourishing and beautiful part of the world attracting many visitors from the inland and abroad.
Today it is a small harbour town, but in Hellenistic and Roman times it was the Capital of Cyprus. Still under the spell of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, the area retains its magic and remains untouched by the passage of time.It seduces its visitor with its majestic landscape, lovely coastline, historical treasures and delightful villages where tradition is still a way of life.
Paphos has an air of holiday charm combined with history, and olden-day elegance is lent to the town by its classical style buildings in the upper part of town which leads to the shopping area.
The lower part of the town, known as Kato Paphos, has a life of its own down near the sea. Here you can find fish tavernas, souvenir shops and several beautiful hotels with important archaeological sites around them.
Paphos is entwined with Greek mythology, and the legendary birth of Aphrodite on her shores brought fame and worshippers there to follow the cult of the Goddess. Landmarks associated with Aphrodite are the chunky, rugged rocks of her beautiful birthplace known as the Aphrodite Rocks or "Petra tou Romiou", the evocative sanctuary of Aphrodite at Kouklia Village, one-time shrine and scene of pagan festivals for thousands, the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis, supposed source of fertility and the Fountain of Love, or Fontana Amorosa, a few miles further into the Akamas Peninsula.
Petra Tou Romiou
Birthplace of Aphrodite. 25 km east of Paphos.
According to legend, Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, rose from the waves in this strikingly beautiful spot. The Greek name, Petra tou Romiou 'The Rock of the Greek' is associated with the legendary frontier-guard of Byzantine times Digenis Akritas, who kept the marauding Saracens at bay with amazing strength. It is said that he heaved this large rock into the sea destroying the enemy's ship.
This is an area of spectacular beauty. According to legend the goddess of love Aphroditi was born out of the waves at this beach.
To get there you have to take the exit of Limassol Paphos highway next to Pissouri village if your coming from the direction of Limassol and then you continue up to the old road of Limassol Paphos. Then you have to turn right and you continue for about 2 km until you sea the Venus rock. 500 m before the rock you have to take right driving from a dirty road up to the top of a hill.
From Paphos you have to take the next exit after the exit of Kouklia village and you continue through the old road up to the Venus rock. 500 m next to the rock you will take a left driving from the the dirty road up to the top of a hill.
Episkopi Village is situated 12 kms towards Paphos. It lies west of the river "Ezousas" and is a village with a special character.
In the village entrance there is a steep rock, dominating the village and the valley underneath. In a few metres distance you can find the Saint Ilarion church (Agios Ilarion) , patron saint of the village. The church is dated back to 1192-1489 AD Frankish (Lusignan) period.
The village took his name from the bishopric (Episkopi) created in the village during the 1192-1489 AD Frankish (Lusignan) period.
The warmth and rich hospitality you will find here are as sincere and old as Cyprus itself. This is a corner of Cyprus as yet untouched by mass commercial development. Whether your shopping in the local store or enjoying a Cyprus coffee at one of the 'Kafeneon's' you may well be surprised at the locals interest shown in visitors from cooler climes. Local places of interest include an Weaving & folklore Museum at Phiti village, annual tulip festival at Pollemi village in April and May plus an abundance of local wineries making excellent days out. In or around Epikopi village you will find many restaurants (one within walking distance of Villa Sermar).
The Environmental Information Centre in the village of Episkopi includes a reception hall, exhibition hall, a screening room, environmental education room and a workshop while the centre's exterior will host a botanical garden.
The exhibition hall contains various photographs, stuffed animals and birds, audiovisual presentations of the natural environment, butterfly and insect collections, wood and geological exhibits. Inside the screening room, visitors can watch a film production on local flora and fauna, vegetation, traditional buildings and other important elements of the region.
