Resort Summary

Not many places could define Cyprus and its long history quite as well as Paphos, which is located on the southwest coast of the island.

A rich thread of history is woven into every part of Paphos, and it shows in the architecture and outlook of the city’s people. It’s said that the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, once called the city home. Her mythic touch can also be felt in nearby sites like Amathus Bay, where a temple still stands in her honour.

There are places all around that demonstrate why the city’s been chosen as European Capital of Culture 2017. Such as Paphos Castle and the Randi Gorge in Aphrodite Hills, where Aphrodite is said to have risen from the sea. These landmarks of a bygone era have to be seen to be believed.
