"~Paphos~" Paphos by freya_heaven

Paphos Travel Guide: 447 reviews and 991 photos


Until an airport was built east of Paphos in 1984, few people had heard of the small fishing & agricultural town of Paphos.

Sadly today the hotels sprawl along the seafront & the whole place is pretty much set for the tourists. We visited in winter time when most shops & restaurants were closed, an ideal trime to visit if your want the historical sights to yourself as we did.

Paphos Ruins

There are many ruins to wander around and explore in Paphos, Here in the right of the photo is St Pauls Pillar, Cyprus was one of the many place Paul visited in his quest to convert people to Christianity.

Paphos Pelican

This was the Paphos Pelican. He lived near the harbour for many years, I believe he has sadly now gone to Pelican Heaven.

See my main Cyprus Page for more details of things to see & do outside Paphos

    Interesting page, as always. I have to go to Kypros-Kibris-Cyprus, but not before they have reached an agreement to reunificate the island, otherwise my European soul would feel sad.

    Lovely overview of Paphos Nicola. Where did you get that deal? That price for 2 weeks is absolutely amazing!
