I have read quite a few reviews of this site so didn't venture as far as some as we didn't have a torch. Take care as the steps are uneven and watch you head when descending. Paintings and candles in one cave and the tree appears to be growing out of the rock. Free to enter and worth a look.

This is a gem of Paphos. It is free to enter, has two trees where people can tie hankies and ribbons for good fortune. I tied a few - heres hoping..... It has little nooks and crannies and gives you a profound feeling inside some of the rooms where there are many ecclectic pictures. People put picture, candles and ribbons... More

The Catacombs are a short walk from the port. They are on the road towards the new King's Mall shopping centre and are very visible because of the ribboned tree near the road. Locals and tourists hang cloth and hankies in the belief that the prayers will cure illness As previous reviewers have said - the steps are steep and... More

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). And the cave was really deep. Thank God my mom was near to catch him. Будьте бдительны. В катакомбах есть пещера наполненная... More

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.
