CYPRUS - PAPHOS BEACHES
 

Pafos, situated on the south-west coast of Cyprus is capital of the district, and historically one of the most important centers on the island. Together with Palai-Paphos (modern Kouklia) they illustrate some of the most glorious moments of the island's history from the times of the Trojan Wars. The Roman capital of Cyprus, Pafos was famous throughout antiquity, for two main reasons: its association with the cult of Aphrodite and the spread of Christianity. In fact, such was the role of Pafos and such is the importance of its ancient remains, that, in 1981, the sites of Palai-Paphos and Nea Pafos, were put on the World Cultural Heritage List of UNESCO.
