KATO PAPHOS ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK
With a history dating back more than eight thousand years, Paphos has a wealth of treasures for the visitor. From the Stone Age, Hellenistic and Roman times, Byzantium through to today, many of the ancient monuments are included in the UNESCO Global Heritage List.
The inclusion of the Kato Paphos archaeological site in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list in 1980 was the starting point for the creation of a General Plan whose aim would be primarily to protect and maintain the archaeological remains, as well as to promote them and provide comprehensive information to visitors. Kato Paphos archaeological Park includes sites and monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, while most remains date to the Roman period.
