The Archaeological Park of Kato Pafos (Paphos) holds immense significance as one of Cyprus's most vital archaeological sites and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980.

During the late 4th century BC, Nicocles, the final King of Palaipafos, relocated the city from its previous position to its current location near the harbor. For a substantial period spanning from the 2nd century BC to the 4th century AD, Pafos served as the capital city of Cyprus.

Encompassing a timeline from the 4th century BC to the Middle Ages, the Park primarily showcases remnants from the Roman period. Among the noteworthy discoveries, the focal point is the intricately designed mosaic floors of four Roman villas: the houses of Dionysos, Theseus, Aion, and Orpheus. These captivating mosaics depict various compelling scenes from Greek Mythology. Alongside these remarkable villas, the Park features several other significant structures, including the Asklepieion, the Odeon, the Agora, the Saranta Kolones (Forty Columns) Castle, the ruins of an Early Christian Basilica at Limeniotissa, and the Tombs of the Kings.
