The cost of entering was very reasonable and the artifacts in the museum very interesting. This isn't as grand as some other historical sites but then the quantity of remains is reflected in the price (EUR2.50 when we went).

Place full of very ancient history but not much to see. Some archaeological artefacts and building and a little museum. Not expensive and if nearby it's worth to visit.

The site is on the top of a hill backed by the idyllic little village of Kouklia, which makes great food and coffee fyi. The large open area after the ticket office is filled limestone ruins and information plaques, however, it does appear that this...More

We were excited going there, unfortunatly there is not much to see outside... and you pay 4,5€ (same as Kato Paphos) ! On the other hand, the small museum is nice.

See my review of Palaepaphos, as it is basically the same place! To sum up, it knocks the Tomb of the Kings into a cocked hat.

As we had hired a car we decided to visit this attraction. The ruins are interesting to see, as is the small museum. The views are fantastic especially as we had a clear day. We decided to stop here after visiting Aphrodite’s Rock but in...More

The site is not very impressive as there is not much standing (as opposed to Sidion & Kourion) but the gem is the little Museum in the back of the site. The Aphrodite mosaic and the artifacts that are over 5,000 years old are impressive.

This is hardly mentioned in guide books, but is a really interesting place with some amazing archaeological finds from thousands of years ago. The views are great too and it's cheap to enter with free parking
