Why you should visit it?
One of the neoclassical buildings of the area designed by the architect Andreas Christodoulides, is the Public Library.
It was renovated in 2015 after an initiative by the municipality of Paphos with the help of The Cyprus Association of Librarians – Information Scientists (CALIS). Paphos’ Public Library opened its doors to the public in 1946, where it hosted many cultural activities.
Founded by the mayor of time Christodoulos Galatopoulos, who it was named after subsequently. It now holds 26,000 volumes, including historic documents and rare publications.
