Palepathos Museum is on a small village, of about 500 people. Never the less the history, and some of the items go back to 3,500 BC. Some interesting remains of the Sanctuary of Aphrodite, and some Roman era remains in the grounds as well, including...More

Another interesting world heritage site on Cyprus. Large and impressive, the clear information boards help you to visualize what was a truly impressive series of temples and monuments. Don't miss the mosaic floor under a canopy - really impressive (original in the museum on site)....More

This is not a huge site but plenty to see. It is best to view the video film first which gives the history of the site. Quite a number of relics from the past, the earliest from 2800bc Chalcolithic period. Also includes a number from...More

Enjoyed our trip to Aphrodite’s Sanctuary, very interesting and educational. The museum was also laid out well however the staff weren't that helpful. Overall I would recommend. Allow about 2 hours for the visit.

We had no expectations of this site, we just saw the brown sign on the main road from Paphos to Pissouri and took a chance - and got an hour of pleasure from doing so. There are a lot of things on this site. The...More

The archaeological remains are presented well with information boards at key points. The whole site has an aura of tranquility about it, but that's possibly because of very few visitors the day we were there. At the far end of the site is a later...More

This place beats the Tombs of the Kings by miles! Maybe topped by the mosaics etc near the harbour. It has ruins that go back several thousand years, back to when it was the capital of Cyprus, and has a good museum with stuff that...More

This is a bit off the beaten track but worth a visit - especially if you have an interest in ancient remains. A tad pricey at 4.50 Euros I thought - but worth it for the museum nd it's broad collection. Many stone pillars etc...More

Although only ruins, it's interesting and there are lovely views from here too. There's an informative film to explain what you see.
