Small with a rememberance tree outside

Down steps to a couple of cave type catacombs. Not much you can actually explore and so only a few minutes required. You can tie a ribbon to the tree of rememberance. Free

It was along the main road near the Pafos Archaeological Site so I swung by...the caves wreak of urine and the area was mosquito infested...couldn't stand being there even a minute...unless you have nothing else to see, go on to the main attractions of Pafos

It was amazing to see the structure still standing and accessible after so many centuries. Need to be careful climbing steps but its worth going into and its free!

It is a really small place, you go without any guides. But the tree with the "tissu offerings" and the dark stairs do a nice thrilling sensation.

There is an interesting story to the place about how Christians hid out in these caves, but the caves themselves are a bit dingy and you need to be careful as the steps can be slippery and you need to duck!

If you imagine going back in time walking... More

Another wonderful surprise if you are Christian and understand about the persecution of Christians in Roman ancint times. Follow the footsteps of St paul.

Small catacomb. Not much there, but it's free. Be careful of the low doorways! I bumped my head so badly, I came close to blacking out. (Had to hold ice on ot for hours) The doorways are only about 4-4.5 ft high...
