Fabrika Hill is a warren of rock-cut tombs and ancient shrines/churches. It was part of Nea Pafos (the North Gate of the city was there) and there were clearly buildings on the top as well because the whole site is covered in pot sherds and bits of masonry (I even found a piece of mosaic flooring). In Medieval times the hill was used as an industrial site (hence the name), possibly using up ancient fragments of marble in lime-kilns.

The hill is not signed, and I suspect few tourists bother to explore it. Take care if you do, because the ground is rough (although there are a few paths laid out) with plenty of potholes for the unwary. It's well worth a wander though.

Walk from the harbour area towards the main road to the Tombs of the Kings. Fabrika Hill is one the right as you come to the traffic lights.
