A beautiful location, there's not a lot inside but soak up the atmopsphere and the beautiful views.

Paphos Castle overlooks the harbour. Although small, it is well worth a visit to view the harbour from above.

An old Fort which can be walked around to see how it used to be plus superb views from the top over Paphos Harbour looking over the boats and yachts and the harbour area worth a look and a reasonable price to enter.

Paphos Castle is located on the edge of Paphos harbour. It was originally built as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour. It was then rebuilt by the Lusignans in the thirteenth century after being destroyed in the earthquake of 1222.

Das Kastell von Paphos befindet sich am Ende der Hafenpromenade und ist das prominenteste Gebäude der Stadt. Im Inneren gibt es eine Ausstellung, aber schöner ist eigentlich die Aussicht auf den Hafen und auf das Meer. Dies ist das wohl meistfotografierte Gebäude und ein Wahrzeichen der Stadt. Abends wird es angestrahlt und verleiht dem Hafen seinen besonderen Charme. Von hier aus führt die Küstenpromenade weiter bis zum Leuchtturm von Paphos. Dieser etwas längere Spaziergang lohnt sich allerdings nur, wenn es hell ist.

Το μεσαιωνικό κάστρο στο λιμάνι της Πάφου αν και μικρό σε μέγεθος δεσπόζει πάνω από τη μαρίνα προσφέροντας όμορφη θέα κατά τη διάρκεια της μέρας και της νύχτας. Αποτελεί ένα χαρακτηριστικό παράδειγμα του τι γινόταν με τους Φράγκους, Ενετούς και Οθωμανούς όπου ο ένας έχτισε πάνω σε αυτό που γκρέμισε το οποίο είχαν φτιάξει οι προηγούμενοι οι οποίοι έκαναν το ίδιο. 'Ετσι, σήμερα αποτελεί ένα μνημείο από Οθωμανούς με βυζαντινά, ενετικά και φράγκικα στοιχεία.
