“Nice place to make photos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you are in Paphos then it is good idea to go to the central harbour just to walk along the sea and to make pictures with the Castle. You can also go inside and "on the roof" of it to see the harbour from its height.

“Romantic & Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

The natural cove with the castle at the end is a pleasurable experience during the day but its at night that comes to life.

“good value”

great value and good to go round. It was nice to see some history in the new part of the port. The harbor itself is delightful

“It would be hard to make much of this castle.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The castle at the end of the harbour in Paphos draws you to it but turns out to be disappointing. It is dark and cavernous with few interesting aspects for the tourist. One is quickly drawn back outside to look at the boats in the harbour and the other tourists promenading up and down in front of the many restaurants. Alternatively one sits down outside to watch the sea, the clouds or the sunset.

“OK site if you have time to kill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

My friend and I visited Paphos and thoroughly enjoyed the archeological sites all around the city. On our last day, we had a few hours to kill and decided to walk to the castle. The entrance fee is relatively cheap (a little over a euro), but there isn't much to see inside. The top provided some very picturesque views, but most parts of the castle were closed off. Most of the chambers looked all the same. I wouldn't suggest to make the castle the top of your list while in Paphos, but if you are like us and have a few extra hours (even a half hour is enough time) and need something to do, this place is alright. It's probably a good place to watch the sunset, but we didn't have time to stay.
