We went because a friend is getting married there next year. There is a small entrance fee but worth it just for the views from the top of the harbour and out to sea. Well located at the end of the harbour in Kato Paphos near to some good restaurants.

Not a great deal to comment upon here. It's really got nothing to commend the very modest entry fee apart from the views from the top which are ok but not exactly spectacular. I guess it's a must do for tourists visiting Paphos

Lovely old medieval fort on the Paphos harbour side. Interesting walk around finding out the history of the fort from the Byzantine era through to more modern times. Great views.

Nice little trip round the harbour and fort. Nice to see they let kids in free and prices are so reasonable - excellent views from up top though.

There are a few uneven steps to the top but the views are worth it. I got some great shots across the harbour and beyond.

The castle is the centre piece of the port and is the background for most of the photos taken here, there are many bars and restaurants as well as souvenir shops and tourist attractions like boat trips, Island tours and safaris. Nice ambiance clean and tidy. Well worth the visit.

Cost a couple of euro entrance fee and spent maybe 10 minutes at the castle. Please don't come to Papos especially to see the castle!
