Scenic Viewpoint
“A geological formation of mammoth rocks off the southwest coast in the Paphos district, this is one of the most breath taking natural sites on the island, associated with the goddess of love Aphrodite, the ancient Greek precursor of the Roman goddess Venus. It is here, by the Rock of Aphrodite, that the goddess arose from the foaming sea and was spirited away on a seashell. To this day, locals say that sometimes the waves break, swirl and rise up in columns of water that fall back and dissolve into sea foam, conjuring up shapes that assume human form.”

Historic Site
“The Sanctuary of Aphrodite, the ruins of which lie not too far from Paphos in the village of Kouklia (the site of the former city-state of Paleo-Paphos), is one of the most important Antique shrines on the island, dedicated to the goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Although only several fragments of the groundwork and columns are left of the "100-halls" temple, it remains espeically spectacular and monumental in its proportions, emitting the unique, unrivalled atmosphere of an ancient sacred site.”
