A ten minute walk from Kato Paphos harbour, Fabrica Hill is a magical place to escape to from the hustle and bustle of the town. Many rock cut tombs, wells, a very early pebble mosaic, a great view over the ancient theatre in the process...More

More cabes and catacombs. As part of the "Paphos capital of culture 2017" someone covered the outer cave with a web of red string, which is supposed to be a big deal, but I have to admit, I really don't get what the big deal...More

It's a rather small underground site with several caves and stairways. Walking inside enables you to escape from the summer heat and to touch history. It's not dark there as sunbeams penetrate through a number of holes in the ceiling vault. There was an art...More

We went here after the "catacombs" just down the road, and found it by complete accident. I have no idea how long we spent exploring here, but it was a real treat for both of us, feeling like we had found a new underground world!...More

Fabrica Hill, really is an important part of Paphos history. Entry can be gained via the main road as you enter one of the catacombs. Access can then be gained to the top of the hill. Here you can get an impressive view of Paphos...More

Excavations are ongoing on the hill, but it is a sadly neglected site. The theatre is the only discernible structure but is ruinous, and there are fragments of buildings exposed by excavation, but no information. The only signage relates to the largest bi-chromatic pebble mosaic,...More
