Signposted from the main road and free to visit. Quite steep to walk up to then uneven worn steps down into the catacombs. Good views of Paphos. Combine it with visiting St Paul's pillar and The Iden for a very interesting free sightseeing half day...More

Good place to pass an hour or so. if you wander about here and the nearby Fabrica Hill along with St Paul's pillar you will get a taste of Paphos of old, just a stones throw away from the modern

We were staying close by and heading towards the harbour. Saw lots of items tied to the tree, so went to investigate. We spent a good 15/20 minutes wondering around. The ground and stairs are uneven so take care. This is free to enter, and...More

On our latest visit we found this site had been fenced off. No indication of why. A pity, its well worth seeing.

walk around these catacomb's with lots of water in the 100 degree heat ... makes you think what went on here and it is really brought to life when you sit and think for a while

A nice little place to visit for free if you’re in the area, but not worth going out of your way for. Visit takes about 10 minutes to see the catacomb. There are quite a few steps and uneven surfaces, so make sure you wear...More

We've bisited this twice now and found it very interesting. But be warned the steps can be really dangerous. It's very easy to get to and its only 5 - 10 minutes walk from the harbour and its free to get in

Thank you. We did find them last year. Also a large area being newly excavated behind some houses. Looking forward to seeing how they have got on when we return in October.
