Try to access it from the slope off the Agion Anargiron Avenue before you get to the large modern church. On top of the small hill you will find a great pebble mosaic, the largest ever found on the island.

seemed to be a placed where drunks used the toilet when we went - free entry easy to find on the main road from the harbour - perhaps if they did charge it would be better looked after - even the donation box looked as if it had been broken into !!

the most diappointing part of the archeological park. Only posive thing is that it was rather cool and shady, worth a maximum of 5 minutes of your time. Save your strength for the mosaics in the archeological park!

You will know you have reached the Catacombs when you see the Handkerchief Tree. If you hang one on the tree it is supposed to bring you good luck for the year, or so I understand. It is free to visit the Catacombs and you have to take care going down the steps. It isn’t very large so doesn’t take... More

St. Solomon’s Catacombs A Pleasant Myth This was an interesting visit but the historical significance of this site is questionable. Make sure that you also climb on top of the catacombs which has some interesting remains. The site is very poorly marked with almost no explanation. Needs some further development.
