Tombs of the Kings is a large necropolis located about two kilometres North West of the Paphos harbour and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the name suggests no kings have actually been buried here but actually it’s the resting place of 100 Ptolemaic aristocrats who died in Paphos between 3 B.C. and 3 A.D.
A lot of the tombs feature Doric columns and frescoed walls. In addition, there are still archaeological excavations being carried out at the Tombs of the Kings site and due to the ongoing excavations the Church of Paleoekklisia, which depict Byzantine frescoes has been discovered. Tombs of the Kings site is situated northwest of Paphos harbour and is considered as one of the main attractions in Paphos. People across the world who love archaeological sites should visit Tombs of the kings as is one of the most amazing archaeological sites in Cyprus.
