We first went to see the Mosaics on a coach trip 25 years ago, and in those days the coach pulled up almost outside the house of Dionysos in front of the wooden steps into the building. we were told that the mosaics were found by chance during levelling operations in 1962. they erected a roof over it to protect the Mosaics from the sun and the rain. Dionysos the god of wine features prominently in the Mosaics so it was decided to call it the house of Dionysos. In 1974 it was nearly destroyed when turkey invaded Cyprus and bombed the area around Paphos and destroyed the roof. In 1974 the present building was erected and is still being used. In 2011 my wife and myself decided to take another look and were amazed at all the changes and of more Archeological discoveries, we have just made another visit in December 2014 and the site is now massive with fascinating discoveries, Its well worth a couple of hours to go and visit the site, There are vending machines in a large shed outside the house of Dionysos at the far end Toilets are at the main entrance. the entrance is the far end of the large car park at the bus station and is by the Harbour. we would love to go back again in a year or so to see what else has been found, Last visit 9th December 2014.
