These catacombs are situated beside the main road from Paphos Harbour. A wish or prayer tree is situated at the entrance and some white doves have made their homes here. Another interesting place to see in Paphos, so many sites in such a small area is unusual and shows the long history of this lovely location.

As per previous review, watch out for the flooded cave. Hard to see and I ended up knee deep in water. Quite enjoyed it, but maybe not for everyone ☺

Please be aware that there is a cave filled with water and there is no stop or warning sign. My son (3 years old) fell into the water (you cant really tell that s water at first sight).

Passing this by chance on a walk into Paphos and scrambled up the roadside bank to get in (its free). Amazing to think people lived like this! Do go if you are near the harbour its only a short walk.

If you are in the harbour area it is worth a visit to the catacombs. There are 2 or 3 entrances which makes it fun to explore. It takes around half an hour to get around it all (if that) and there are some nice views from the top.

An eerie place to visit. Hard to imagine that folk had to hide here in fear of their lives. Reminded me of what it may have been like hiding during the Holocaust in WW2

Easy visit to a small site. Watch your step. The footing is sometimes unsteady. Also at the bottom of one room has a standing pool of water.

If you are going there with a travel guid, they will explain the importance of the place. Just be a little careful while goin down the stairs as the place is very old.
