Visit Paphos District

The Paphos District of Cyprus is a beautiful region located in the south-western corner of the island, renowned for its stunning beaches and breathtaking mountain views. It's home to charming white-washed villages, archaeological sites and vibrant cities, making it a popular destination for tourists from all around the world.

A must-see attraction in Paphos is the Tombs of The Kings, which date back to the fourth century BC. This UNESCO World Heritage Site features impressive underground tombs carved into limestone rock with spectacular frescos depicting scenes from Greek mythology.

Another popular tourist spot is Aphrodite's Rock, believed to be where Aphrodite - goddess of love - rose out of the sea foam at birth. Visitors will find secluded coves and crystal waters ideal for swimming or snorkeling nearby.

Paphos also has an interesting historical past; it was here that Saint Paul preached Christianity when he visited Cyprus during his missionary journey more than 2000 years ago. Today visitors can visit churches dedicated to him as well as ancient ruins such as those found at Kato Paphos Archaeological Park which provide insight into life in Cyprus during antiquity.
