Sufficient to see from the road unless you're really into this sort of thing. Easy to get to though.

This is an area outside Limassol travelling on the coastal road towards Lanarka. These ruins are set back from the road and a short walk is needed to actually get to see them properly.

You need a lot of imagination when you visit the site. Situated by the main road so lots of road noise. They are just ruins and not well preserved ones but worth a visit.

Awesome place with rich history and gorgeous views! Not busy so we were able to take our time, eat a peaceful lunch, take in the views and enjoy our time together. Wonderful place!

We had visited Kourion earlier in the day and dropped in here on the way back to the hotel in the late afternoon. Compared to Kourion it is very small and there is very little of the original temple left standing. Visit if you are happy to wonder among the ruins and imagine what might have been here 2000 years... More

Park your car and take a walk up the cliff to then see historical treasure by way of Greek ruins. You can then see clearly round the bay of Limassol and the Greek temple. It isn't worth paying €2.50 to go and wonder round so this is the best way to see it. My boys aged 10 & 12 enjoyed... More

Nice little museum site, outdoors that you pay entry for, with reasonable boards providing information in English. Then the rest of the site is free entry, up the hill, with fabulous views of the coast and a replica giant vase at the top. Worth the gentle 10minute climb up the hill.

Only 2.5 euros admission charge. Need to include ramble up to top to get best finds/views. It looks at first sight as though this part is fenced off but it can be accessed from the left side of the site.
