Paphos Lighthouse

Ahoy there, sailors and history buffs! We have a story that’ll make you feel like you’re on a grand adventure:

We’re talking about the well-known Paphos Lighthouse inside the Archaeological Park of Kato Pafos. 

And let us tell you; it’s like discovering a treasure map that leads to gold. 

Get ready for some serious excitement.

First up, it’s situated on Paphos Point, and get this – it was built in 1888 when Cyprus was under British administration.

We’re walking through a history book with the most exciting stories.

The Paphos Lighthouse is a magnificent 20m high structure with whitewashed masonry featuring a lantern and a gallery. 

In addition to the tower, a keeper’s house and accessory buildings are located within the compound.

The Paphos Lighthouse, previously a landfall marker for shipping destined to Paphos Harbour, is now a popular attraction.

But wait, there’s more. Back then, the whole of Cyprus was a critical military base for the British, who protected the route of ships traveling through the Suez Canal straight to the British colonies. 

This centuries-old landmark is not only a symbol of the region’s proud maritime history but also a must-visit destination for those seeking a memorable experience.
 
So Don’t leave Paphos without experiencing the magic of the Lighthouse and taking a selfie with it!
