The birthplace and centre of worship of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the whole area retains some of this magic. Landmarks associated with Aphrodite are the chunky, rugged rocks of her beautiful birth shore known as the Aphrodite Rock or "Petra tou Romiou",the evocative sanctuary of Aphrodite at Kouklia Village, one-time shrine and scene of pagan festivals for thousands, the Baths of Aphrodite at Polis, supposed source of fertility and the Fountain of Love, or Fontana Amorosa, a few miles further into the Akamas Peninsula. Even the town's name is linked to the Goddess as Paphos was the name of the mythological daughter of Venus and Pygmalion.
Kato Paphos is central for exploring all areas, historic Tombs of the Kings, Aphrodites rock, Coral Bay, Zoo/bird park, up into the mountains of Troodos, markets and designer shops, restaurants to suit all tastes including Chinese, Indiian, Mexican, English, Greek, Paphos Water Park, Diving, Water sports, Golf, quiet beaches, fishing harbours, family beaches. Suiting all ages from small children to the older generation with plenty of sun, sun and more sun.
So whether just wanting to relax by the pool, tour all the areas by car, walk around the shops and markets, or go down to the beach and visit the water park and zoo, there is plenty of choice to do what you want to do.
