Paphos Harbour Castle - Review

This unassuming structure has served quite a number of uses. It was a Byzantine fort to begin with. An earthquake devastated it and so the Franks refortified it in the 1200s. The Venetians broke it before the Ottomans could take over in 1570, and then the Ottomans rebuilt it. Finally, the British used it in the 20th century as a salt warehouse. If all this sounds singularly unromantic, that’s unfortunate, because the building is actually a strategic defence for Paphos.

Today, it’s one of Paphos’ most prominent  landmarks, and a site for many culture exhibitions an events. Tourists are often disappointed that there is nothing to see inside the castle, so you’ve been forewarned. Still, climb dup. It’s cheap, and the views from the top are spectacular. There are plenty of eateries nearby and the place looks quite pretty lighted up in the evening.

Paphos Harbour Castle, Paphos Reviews

  • There is not a great deal to see at the castle. Access restricted to basement and the roof. Quite a few rooms sealed off. There are some information boards about local flora and fauna in the basement. Steep narrow steps to the room which does give great views over Paphos harbour area. Worth a visit. €2.50 entrance fee in Sept 2018.

  • One of the nicest landmarks of Paphos in Cyprus in the little marine. Easy to access and with a wonderful view from the top. It’s part of the old towns castle constructed by the Francs and used by ottomans as well. Worth to visit, nicely lighted at the night. Many times there are temporary exhibitions.

  • למרות שהמחיר נמוך, אבל תכלס אין מה לראות. סה"כ מבנה קטן. כמה תאים סגורים וגג. אין שום הסבר מה זה ועל מה זה. חוץ מלתפוס צל ביום חם לא משהו. לא שווה את המחיר.

  • Very nice view from afar especially during the sunset. Once you get near the castle there is a few places to eat and drink with a very chilled and relaxed atmosphere. Also during the day they have stalls with many different things but mainly handmade. Over a lovely spot

  • Nice view of the harbour from the roof, not much else to see. Worth a visit whilst down at the harbour.
