– The Northeast Gate

An imposing structure in the main city wall, the gate dates to the 8th century B.C. and played a part in the Persian siege of the city in 498 B.C.

– The city wall and the Palace of Hadji Abdulla

Take a ten-minute stroll from the Northeast Gate and you will discover the remains of the city wall, and a palace from the 6th century B.C., thought to be the home of Palepaphos, the governor of Persia.

– The House of Leda

A visit to the site of the House of Leda is a must, the central dining room has a well-preserved 2nd century A.D. mosaic floor depicting some stunning scenes from mythology of Leda and the Swan.

– The Church of Panagia Katholiki

This well-preserved church is certainly worth taking a closer look at, as inside, the walls are decorated with traditional 15th century artwork.

– The sugar-cane refinery

Processing sugar cane was an important industry in Palepaphos. The sugar mill and refineries in the coastal plain of Kouklia are well preserved and certainly worth seeing.

– The Lusignian Manor House

Built in the 13th century, then added to over the centuries, this administrative centre includes a Gothic Hall that many say is one of the most impressive examples of Frankish profane architecture on the island. This building also houses an interesting museum of archaeology.

– Cemeteries

There are several cemeteries within the area, which have yielded many finds of great archaeological interest. Visit the museum in the Lusignian Manor House to view these treasures from the tombs.
