Take your camera with you for photos of this scenic site with ancient ruins of a dormitory, bathhouse, and a temple to Apollo. This was part of an excursion offered by our cruise ship. It was worth the ride from the port of Paphos here...More

Once a stopping off place for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land, this is a small patch of ancient ruins. Little information about the function of the buildings in their heyday.

my wife and I visited this site. Amazing atmosphere but some of the information signs had weathered so as to be unreadable. This was a shame as would have liked to know more.

We found this by accident and decided to visit. It wasn't expensive (2E50) and well worth the money. However there were a few tours going around which we found a bit intrusive. Its hard to tell what has been restored and what is original.

You can imagine a lot there and all these artefacts are really impressive. Well worth a visit. Not too crowded

A small but beautiful site. There is not much to see on the site. The crowning glory is two whole columns left from the temple. Disabled entrance free. Free parking.

Great site, fabulous remains, easy to get to but you need a car. Near Kourion so a visit to both in one day possible. Excellent site, one let down was the member of staff who was indifferent and curt.

Well worth a trip. Layers of Cypriot history with Christian and Roman remains on top of an earlier Pagan site. Round Pagan worshipping area not often seen in a Roman/Christian setting. €2.50. Toilets but no refreshments.
