A wonderfully tranquil and peaceful little museum with many interesting exhibits, well worth a stop.

Here is yet another ancient site just a few miles away from Paphos. It is very much work in progress and we saw staff piecing together a pot which had been broken many years. Rough walking but reasonable entry fee and largely unsupervised.

When we went to the Monastery we also went into the Museum. On display were many interesting religious artefacts - bibles, illustrated manuscripts, Icons, maps, etc

Had no idea the ruins were there as it is not advertised. A nice surprise when we got there. 615 bus from coral bay takes you there. Takes about half an hour. Beautiful views.

The Museum is across the street from Agios Georgios Monastery, situated in a very beautiful natural landscape. The entrance fee is 1.7 EUR and you receive a brochure (be sure you read it if you want to understand something about the place). Here you can see the ruins of an ancient community and some beautiful and preserved mosaics from a... More

Not far from Paphos, Agios Georgios can quickly and easily be reached by car, and when you arrive there is free parking. The bay offers a pleasant view, a small harbour with only a couple of boats adds to the scene. The archaeological site is next to the car park and so is the church. Even if you aren’t generally...

We stayed with friends & were fortunate to be able to borrow their 2nd car, which enabled us to go & explore sites like this at our leisure. It's well worth a visit, coupled with the old church & new, plus the rock tombs in the cliff that overlooks the quaint little marina, where there is a cafe & free... More

Went on a half day trip on the big red bus. Beautiful place and really interesting. Only 1 euro to get into the museum, which isn't huge but has some really interesting relics. Grounds are really peaceful with lovely views.

Quite enjoyable, and made a nice change. It would be of great interest to people who are interested in ruins. Went along with friends who were desperately trying to educate me on the joy of old ruins.

Agios Georgios at Pegeia is a famous place of pilgrimage in the Paphos region in the west of Cyprus. Three early Christian Basilicas and a bath, all from the 6th century, were excavated in the early 1950s. Later excavations revealed an extensive unwalled settlement that occupied the neck and the south slope of the cape in the Roman and early... More
