These elaborate tombs are in a generally poor state of preservation. Looting in antiquity, earthquakes and quarrying have all taken their toll. Little information is available and that relates to only a handful of tombs.

Another beautiful, hot morning spent wandering around another amazing site on the edge of Paphos so full of history! Went early in the morning and avoided crowds in the most famous of the tombs and I was able to get the most wonderful photographs looking just like the postcards! Again, take plenty of water as out in the open as... More

A must visit at 2.5 euros each worth every penny , Steeped in history and fantastic views I recommend going in the afternoon when the hoards have finished you have more time to see everything and depending on time of year we watched the sun setting Brilliant
