Before they put the big ugly concrete blocks along the wall beside the old castle it had a much nicer and original feel to it...Still worth a walk around but the biggest PITA are the "Restaurant Hustlers" who pester anybody walking along the harbourside, we make it a policy to never go into a restaurant where we are approached as...

Visited with family whilst out and about in Paphos. Entry was free when we visited which was good as there is not a great deal to see. On the lower level there are several areas with information boards detailing the castles history etc. You can also pick up guide books etc from the attendant. Stairs go up to the top... More

There is very little to see in the castle itself. It is quite bare inside, just empty spaces with no artefacts to inspect. There is an information board in the entrance but I really do feel they have a bit of a nerve to charge entry. There are good views from the roof but battlements of the castle are not... More
