Before you visit this site, please read about the history and consider what you are doing there. It is a shame that Paphos having been granted capital of culture couldn't get it together to improve information at some sites to inform people about what they...More

I am always stunned by the atmosphere here. We first found it by accident years ago after seeing all of the ribbons and hankies in the tree. We always come back each time we are here. It is worth reading the story of this on...More

Steep steps down, very steep at the bottom and wet, don't put your feet in at the very bottom, it is crystal clear water, and difficult to see, you will definitely need a torch, or light on your mobile phone. FREE attraction worth a look....More

Was bought hear on a whim by are wedding photographer. There was a very interesting art instillation which made a fantastic back drop for are wedding album. Worth a visit if you like a bit of history or art, as I do.

This is just about 5-10 minutes walk from the harbour area and worth a walk. You head up towards the Kings Avenue Mall and will see it. It isn't vast but has a special feel about it. Take a ribbon with you as it is...More

To me the word catacomb is vast tunnels. 2 holes in the wall is what the call a catacomb. No explanation of the area. The tree outside is is full of handkerchiefs also with no explanation. We were lucky enough that a local passed and...More

They told us that we would recognize it by the white ribbons, and we did, it's hard to miss as you walk the main road. A very small but beautiful and quiet site. The Catacombs of St. Solomon. You might need a torch if you...More

Thank you. We did find them last year. Also a large area being newly excavated behind some houses. Looking forward to seeing how they have got on when we return in October.
