With history and culture enticing visitors from near and far to explore each and every corner of Paphos, times past are now the focus of attention, albeit with a cool modern twist in an old town that has been brilliantly revamped. And with the renovated Hani of Ibrahim (Ibrahim’s Khan) standing proud at the centre of it all, with contemporary architectural features accentuating the old brickwork, we give you three great reasons to check it out.
The famous ‘Tombs of the Kings’ form part of the Archaeological Park of Kato Pafos (Paphos) – one of the most important archaeological sites of Cyprus that has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list since 1980.
The unique architecture of the Public Library, the town hall and the numerous neoclassical buildings.
We suggest you wear comfortable shoes and a sun hat, bring a camera, a shopping bag and a bottle of water if you plan to adventure into the vibrant heart of Pafos Old Town.
Saint Neophytos monastery lies 10 km outside Pafos, near Tala village. Saint Neophytos was the founder of the monastery in 1159. He lived there and died in 1219 at the age of 85. The main church of the monastery was built around 200 years after his death and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Visitors to Pafos are genuinely spoiled for choice: be it our long and fascinating history, or the visual delights which have been unearthed and carefully conserved to allow us to dip into the past and move back in time to discover thousands of years of the region’s history.
