The countryside is serenely beautiful throughout the year with fertile plains, citrus fruit plantations, vineyards, rocky coves, sandy beaches and crystal clear skies.
The harbour area with its ancient castle, mosaics depicting Dionysus the God of Wine as well as many other wonderful antiquities, beautiful churches and Monasteries make this area a haven for tourists.
Many Archaeological sites can be found in Kato (or lower Paphos), whilst the old town known as Ktima sits further inland high up on a rocky plateau.
One of the most visited sites is the Tombs of the Kings, a vast area of impressive underground tombs which date back to the 4th Century BC. They are carved out of solid rock with some being decorated with Doric pillars. High officials rather than Kings were buried here, but the magnificence of the tombs gave the locality its name.
Today Paphos is a thriving coastal city. The authorities have invested heavily in irrigation dams, water contribution works, road infrastructure and the development of the International Airport of Paphos.
Paphos is a secure environment, pleasant, friendly and ideal for permanent living.
