The inclusion of the Kato Pafos archaeological site in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1980 was the catalyst for a far-reaching plan, the aim of which was to protect and maintain the town’s archaeological remains, as well as to promote them and provide comprehensive information for visitors.
Kato Pafos Archaeological Park includes sites and monuments from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages, while most date from the Roman period. The marvellous mosaic floors of four Roman villas form the impressive epicentre of the Park, but the complex also includes other important monuments, such as the Asklipieion, the Odeon, the Agora, the “Saranta Kolones” (Forty Columns) fortress, the basilica of Panagia Limeniotissa (Our Lady of the Harbour) and the “Tombs of the Kings”.
