Sol Alter

Alright, art lovers, listen up – we’ve got a statue as cool as a cucumber on a hot summer day. It’s called Sol Alter, and you can find it near Paphos Promenade and very close to Paphos Castle.

The talented local artist/sculptor Yiota Ioannidou, also known for creating the Little Fisherman sculpture, created this bronze beauty.

And get this – Sol Alter is a young girl climbing on a rock, facing the far and widespread attraction Petra Tou Romiou, the birthplace of Aphrodite (you know, the goddess of Love and Beauty).

It pays homage to Aphrodite, whom we’re told the young girl aspires to be like.

For me, this statue IS Aphrodite. I like that statue so much, so I visit her whenever I’m in the area: I see this statue as the “Copenhagen’s Little Mermaid” of Paphos.

So whether you’re an art lover or just looking to climb rocks, Sol Alter is worth visiting while walking in the area or the Castle.

Trust me; this statue is as inspiring as it is beautiful. And don’t forget your camera!

Sol Alter

You’ll find the sculpture in Kato Paphos, next to the glorious Paphos Castle!

This incredible statue brings the goddess Aphrodite to life as if she’s just emerged from the shimmering sea!

Sol Alter means “Another Sun” – Pythagoras gave Venus this name for its radiance. Roman mythology used Venus for this planet, associated with the god of love, Aphrodite.
