The Archaeological Park is one of the most important archaeological sites in Cyprus. Nikoklis, the last King of Palaipaphos, decided to move the town from its old location to the current (near the port) on the late 5th to early 4th century BC. Paphos became the capital of Cyprus in the 2nd century BC and it remained like this until the 4th century AD.
The Archaeological Park includes four houses: Dionysos, Theseus, Aionas and Orpheus, with mosaic floors which depict scenes from the Greek mythology, the Odeon, the Asklepion, the Agora, the city walls and the remains of the Byzantine castle. The park has been proclaimed a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
