nice place to visit, ancient temple of Aphrodite plus a museum displaying items from the site, separated into various rooms. The museum is housed in a large medieval mansion.

Only giving an additional star because the security guards were very nice and gave us a little tour. Just like most every other site in Cyprus, it's really just a pile of rocks and a nice sea view. They've also got a little museum bit with some vases and paintings and you're allowed to walk over centuries old mosaics for some reason, but unless you really have an interest in mythology, it's unfortunately just really boring.

Went here around lunch time, the weather was amazing, so the walk was very nice. Saw a huge lizard, which was a plus. The archeological remains were very interesting, and we loved the museum, especially since there was a guy working there (Elias, if I remember correctly) who told us many interesting things about the exhibits and pointed us towards the most significant pieces.

You have to be very interested in archeological places to see the meaning of this place. The walls are less then 1 meter, you need a lot of imagination to see the temples and sanctuary places.

This is a very important site of the main place of worship of the goddess Aphrodite. Unfortunately very little remains of the buildings/architecture but it is still a lovely site to walk around and has great sea views. There is a exceptional mosaic of Leda and the Swan and a really good small museum with lots of amazing 3000 year old pots and artifacts. It's not as spectacular as Kurion or the Pafos archaeological site, but in combination with lunch/drinks in the village and a trip to Aphrodite's beach, it makes a great day (1/2 day) out.
