“The Guardian of the Harbour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

The castle is built on the beginning of the breakwater which protects the touristic harbour of Paphos, it is made of nude stone with no remarkable remainings inside, but the visit is worth to see the ancient prisons that served Byzantins, Lusignans, Venetians and Ottomans or to pass through the old walkways which bring to the roof of the bilding where you can enjoy a nice view of the city.

“Great spot to watch the sunset!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

It is an unassuming tiny castle (by UK standards!) but is perched on a rocky mound at the very end of the harbour with giant white rocks where you can enjoy an ice cold beer and watch the sun set over Paphos :)
