The inclusion of the Kato Pafos archaeological site in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1980 was the starting point for the creation of a General Plan aimed primarily to protect and maintain the archaeological remains, as well as to promote them and provide comprehensive information to visitors.
Kato Pafos archaeological Park includes sites and monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, while most remains date to the Roman period. The marvelous mosaic floors of four Roman villas form the impressive epicentre of the finds. The complex includes other important monuments, such as the Asklipieion, the Odeion, the Agora, the "Saranta Kolones" (Forty Columns) Fortress, the "Limeniotissa" Ruins of an early Christian Basilica and the "Tombs of the Kings".
The Paphos archaeological Park can be visited daily. Opening hours:
Winter (16th September – 15th April): 8.30 - 17.00 Summer (16th April – 15th September): 8.30 - 19.30
