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.

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

Nice place to visit and have some stunning sea views. The ruins area actually RUINS and there is not a lot to be seen, but there are some archaeological items in exposition inside of the building with a lot of value.
