Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What amazing mosaics and still in fantastic condition.
    Just to see the mosaics in all their glory are well worth the entrance fee.
    This is the 3rd time seeing this wonderful site.
    If this is your thing then make a beeline and see history.

    For fans of Saint Paul (like me) visiting Saint Paul's pillar is an absolute must. When I went there in September the whole basilica area was a complete mess of road construction and actually finding the place was quite difficult. What you see is a relatively modern although attractive church built over the ruins of a 4th century basilica. You walk around the site on a series of raised walkways looking down at patchy mosaics and the rather confusing layout of the early church. We know from Acts 13: 4-12 that Saint Paul did visit Cyprus and visited Paphos, so it is quite possible that he may have visited this site before any of the buildings and ruins we now see were constructed. Whether he was actually whipped against the pillar which is labelled as Saint Paul's pillar is much more speculative. We do have evidence from the Bible that Paul was whipped and beaten because he says so in 2 Corinthians 11. But we don't have any evidence (except a local tradition) that he received 39 lashes against this particular pillar in Paphos. Sorry if this is a spoiler!

    One of the best sites in Neo Paphos,and in all of Cyprus.If you go in summer you need sun protection as there are not many places to escape the sun,pensioners get in free,also the normal fees are quite low.To see all parts you need a good 3 hours there is so much to see,as pensioner myself I recommend at least 2/3 visits,as it’s free👍.I’m not certain but most sites are free to pensioners.I’ve been multiple times over the years,and there are always new discoveries,most of the digs are done by University’s from all over the world,a little tip if you stand on the Amphitheatre stage in the middle and clap your hands,you will be amazed by the acoustics

    a trail of catacombs and ancient sites from Hellenistic period. Has some walking so you must wear comfortable shoes. The trail takes you from inside the catacombs to the top of the hill

    Don't expect too much. It was quaint but apart from nice views & some nice local artisans works it wasn't anything to write home about. It wasn't very characterful, which is what the name implies. I'm glad we had a look but if you miss it, don't worry.

    This forms part of the Archaeological Park of Pafos and it is the remains of a medieval castle that was destroyed in an earthquake in the 13th century.
    The remains of the castle are interesting and a testament to the building skills of that era can be seen by the fact that there is a prominent arch of masonry still standing after all these years and despite the earthquake. There are also many toppled columns on the site that look like they are made from granite. The smoothness and circular shape of these columns also show how skilled the craftsmen were as granite is a very hard material to work with. I am given to understand that the name Saranta Kolones translates from Greek to mean 'Forty Columns'.
    The siting of the castle may be a reason why this site may not receive as much attention as it should being at the end of the guided path through the rest of the archaeological park. I would not be surprised to find that many people give it scant regard due to being very tired and worn out with ancient sites after walking around the whole Archaeological Park in very warm or hot weather - this would be a shame.

    We stumbled across this ruined monestary. As other reviewers say it is surprisingly well taken care of a rarety in Cyprus with a roof cover protecting what's left of the wall painting from the elements. A simple info board gives a brief history. The mill race can be imagined in the now dried up stream and some interesting buildings can be seen along the way. Lovely wild flowers in Springtime and many trails sign posted for walkers

    We paid a return visit to the Town Hall as a reminder of the place we had to obtain our Marriage Certificate back in 2006. As this was our 13th Anniversary and we were in the area, it seemed the thing to do. Lovely place and well tended and maintained.

    Started the journey from the abandoned village of Vretsia.from there the nature trail begins and its a 3km route winding through remote forest. Along the way there are small signs labelling the plants and trees nearest the path. No tourists were seen the whole time however birds lizards and butterflies were seen. The bridge appeared like something out of a fairy tale. Would definitely recommend.

    Wednesday 5th October we had just been to visit the impressive Church Agion Anargyron, we were walking back towards the Harbour along Minoos where we spotted this ancient site.

    We learnt from the sign that these were Baths, Medieval - Ottoman Period.

    All we could see was the outside of the Baths as they were closed up. They did look a bit unsafe with some crumbling brickwork. There was a well weather beaten sign nearby indicating that funding had been received to repair the Baths. We got the impression that the restoration had been shelved for some time.

    Still an interesting ancient site along the roadside.
