Kingdoms of Pafos

Thursday 12th October

Pafos is a city of myths and legends. Theatres, agoras, mosaics, ancient tombs, catacombs and churches are some of the elements of this cultural palimpsest, with Palaipafos and New Pafos being acknowledged by the UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Pafos, the birthplace of Aphrodite and Capital of Cyprus during the Hellenistic and the Roman periods, carries the imprint – one that is both grand and tragic – of the entire history of the island. Archaeologist Claire Balandier and her associates have compiled a series of tours and visits based on the city’s history and local myths. The centre of these tours is Fabrica Hill where excavations have brought to light one of the best preserved quarries of the Hellenistic years, the theatre, the ruins of a temple, hidden worship sites and the remnants of an aqueduct.
