The harbour is such a lovely place to visit. The castle is at the far end and offers stunning sea views and photo opportunities. Yesterday staging was being erected with the castle as a back drop. Probably for an operatic performance. Will be magnificent. There are new statues and additions (art gallery this week - craft shop last) for the... More

As Paphos is European city of culture for 2017 there was an event being set up at the castle and it was closed. Looks like a dilapidated old building from the outside, no idea what it's like inside. Disappointed could not go in but plenty of other things to do in Paphos.

Lovely atmospheric castle but it was being decked out for the Pafos City of Culture preparations with a stage in the moat and seating terraces in front. I don't think you could get in. But don't hesitate to try because at some point the construction will be finished.

On the 11th of April we tied the knot in this impressive location at the Paphos Harbour! The Castle was our first choice and all our wedding photos capture the joyous moments perfectly. Make a point to visit this imposing structure when in Paphos !

Nice port. And at the end of the promenade the "castle". That's it. Didn't go inside. No idea if possible.

Paphos Castle isn't so impressive from the outside but once you pay your two and a half euros and enter this building you realise it is worth the money. There is an audio visual presentation on the ground floor, which explains the history of the castle and when you climb the stairs to the battlements you are rewarded with a... More

So, Ok, it is not expensive, only 2.50 Euros per adult, but then you don't get much for your money except a view of Paphos. There are a few boards to read downstairs but once you climb the stairs, nothing to read whatsoever. It would be good if they could at least have boards explaining what things are. For example...

Nothing much to see, more picturesque, but still worth going inside and climbing to the roof. Kids would like it.
