The Harbour at Kato Paphos is located a mere 4kms from the area of Universal and the area attracts visitors all year round. You can stroll along the quay and visit one of the many fish restaurants, tavernas and cafes. During the summer many cultural events take place in the square just in front of the Medieval Castle of Paphos at the harbour. The castle is, in fact, all that remains of a much earlier castle dating from 1391, which was demolished by the Venetians. A visit to the Paphos Archaeological Park is a must during your stay, the park is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list and includes monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, while most remains date to the Roman period.

The remains of villas, palaces, theatres, fortresses and tombs mean that the town is of exceptional architectural and historic value. The well-preserved mosaics and the Tombs of the Kings is probably the biggest cultural draw with further archaeological discoveries continually being made.
