Believe it or not, hidden behind Debenhams (yes you read correct! ) is an absolutely little gem of Roman history. Free to enter and so quiet, yet literally seconds off the main road from Kato Pafos to Ktimo Pafos. Easy to spend a quiet hour here.

This site is full of history of Pathos and totally free. It is being restored to its former glory. It changes every year I visit. I personally love it. It is easy to miss this and is in the heart of Pathos.

Came across this in a guild book, but very easy to stumble over when exploring off the beaten track. This must have been an impressive site in its day esp the mosaics. Free entry but don’t forget to put some money in the church box when visiting.

This place is a little hard to find as it is off a side street from the tourist area, but well worth a visit. Firstly it is free, and secondly although the St Paul's column is the main attraction the other Roman ruins are spectacular. More so as it seems they are just lying around on the back streets of...

This isn't well signposted, but I found a lot of that walking about Paphos. Nice to walk about, no tours or guide to explain the site but there are posts up detailing the ruins.

Look like a modern marble column.. The rest of the site is more interesting and nicely presented with walkways.

Interesting to see. Although slightly underwhelming. Church in the grounds is beautiful and also good to see the Roman baths too

We were walking around the harbour area and stumbled upon this interesting site behind Debenhams. As it was free, we spent a pleasant hour wandering around and getting great photos. Lovely and peaceful inside the church. Not sure its worth a special trip but if you are in the area, its good for a bit of history and culture.
