“A bit of history but not much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Situated in the harbour a Kato Paphos, the castle is rather disappointing; the surrounding area of restaurants and bars is much more interesting. As castles go, this is more the size of a decent sized house with not a lot to see inside and very little in the way of information. Nice view from the top of the castle though, but not really worth the €1.70 to get up their. Having said that, it's well worth the trip to the harbour to see the boats and mix with all the other activities that go on in that area. It's also an ideal place to have meal in the evening. There are so many restaurants to choose from.

“A Castle with A View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Kato Paphos Castle stands at the end of the harbour, and makes quite an imposing sight, but that is about it. Inside there is little to see but you can climb to the top and get good views of the harbour and town below.
Along the harbour there are many restaurants, each appearing to have exactly the same menu and each having the friendly waiter outside trying to grab your attention. There are a series of tourist shops and a few special interest boutiques, very similar to most resorts in the Mediterranean. The area offers a pleasant stroll for 45 minutes or so and some attractive views and good ice cream.

Full of history this interesting building drips history. Amazing building that has stood there seemingly forever. Cheap entrance. Great views from roof. A useful 30 min diversion.
