This is not a site with one temple, but a collection of buildings of all kinds. One can enter the area via the Kourion gate. On your left side: palaestra (school for wrestlers) and dormitories. In front: the remainings of the Paphos gate. To the...More

This is a place you could observe ruins left from several historical periods, Greek, Roman, and early Christian.

I visited here after seeing Kourion. The guide book suggested that entry here was included in the €4.50 you pay at Kourion but that was not the case. This was an extra €2.50. Still worth coming here as well if you have the time. It...More

The Sanctuary barely seems to get a mention as it is so close to the stunning Ancient Kourion, but it is very much worthy of a visit in its own right. A real opportunity to stand in a time warp. Fabulous.

Overshadowed by nearby Kourion this place could be easily missed, but do stop it is well worth it. A smaller site than Kourion it is still interesting and unique.

We came here after visiting the other site in Kourion, this is a more hill based site and you need good shoes/boots to get around, some rebuilding going on, not sure if I agree with that.....a great visit as part of the Kourion trip.

At just €5 for 2 this is a lovely little stop with more historic finds to view but whilst we were meandering around we noticed that there are lots of parts that are now new. We finally found a sign that stated they were recreating...More

Easy to find and cheap. Pretty scenic views and can walk up the hills around too. Facilities clean and some stuff to read. Well worth the stop and walk round.
