The castle at the end of Paphos Harbour is in good condition, it is not the original site of the castle as this is a later one, built I believe in the Middle Ages. You are allowed to drive along the back of the buildings and there is a free car-park also at the rear. The walk to the castle... More

It's a very interesting place with lovely friendly people! I disliked the fish they sell I hate fish! I liked the people they made you feel welcome!

This area is now virtually pedestrianised and the walk to the castle from the large car park is excellent.There are bars/ cafes where you can break the journey but I would wait 'till you were on your way back and search out Phillipos (I think it is called) supermarket, where they have a restaurant and prices , at least half...

I visited the castle in Paphos Harbour on my recent vacation. As I understand it, the original fortress, whose ruins can be seen a little further along the harbour front, was replaced by this one built some time in the middle ages. This is probably the reason for this castle being in quite good condition. Having climbed the steps to... More

My wife and I walked down to the area on our first morning in Paphos and waited for the sun to rise. The whole area is beautiful and some great photo opportunities abound! We didn't go inside but appreciated it from outside and the views are great.

Apparently there used to be 2 castles but for convenience sake they destroyed one many years ago. Worth a visit just for the view. About 5 francs to get in. There are rooms to look at and stairs to climb to the top.

It looks like it might be interesting from the outside, but there is actually nothing to see inside, and very little information available. If you have three minutes of your life you want to waste then step up to the kiosk. It is hard for something priced at Euro 2.50 to be grossly overpriced, but this managed it.

It appears much smaller internally than you would imagine from the outside. And perhaps at 5 euros the best view is the external one, sitting majestically on the harbour side at Paphos. It rather goes against the grain ( and this was previously a British grain store) to suggest that this empty shell is not worth the entrance fee, but... More

It is only 10 min walk round seemed pricy to me at 5 euro the but I guess you do get some great views from above. You need to be stable on your feet a bit of a climb up some narrow steps to the top

The harbour has a beautiful marina with a variety of boats and yachts. It also has the four roman villas with mosaic floors. There is a small castle which dates back to the Ottoman Empire. It is not accessible for disabled or for those that cannot climb winding stairs. It was only €2.50 to visit. The view is magnificent and... More
