The Grivas Monument and Museum

Alright, history buffs, let’s talk about the Grivas Museum – the place to be if you want to get your rebel fix. 

Located just 4km north of Kato Pafos (aka the spot where all the action happened), this museum is dedicated to one heck of a story. 

But, of course, I’m talking about the caïque Agios Georgios, captained by EOKA rebel Georgios Grivas himself.

In November 1954, this bad boy landed with an ample supply of arms and munitions, aiming to overthrow British colonial rule. Talk about some severe rebellion vibes, am I right? But like any good story, there’s a twist – Grivas and his rebels were finally arrested two months later while trying to land again. The nerve!

But don’t worry; the Grivas Museum has got you covered regarding all the juicy details. The walls are covered in documentation of the capture, including mug shots (yeah, they had those back in the day) and some seized rifles and ammunition. It’s like stepping back in time without all the danger and secrecy.

Let’s keep the party going at the Grivas Museum because it’s not just a museum. It’s also home to a monument and statue commemorating the whole shebang (I’m talking about the caïque Agios Georgios landing, in case you forgot). And get this – there’s even a hotel on site.

So that soaks up all the history, then hits the hay without worrying about a long commute back to your hotel.

Don’t worry; I’ve got you covered. Just hop on the Pafos Buses number 615 bus from the Harbour Bus Station (only €2!), and you’ll be there instantly.

The bus departs roughly every 15 minutes, so you won’t have to wait too long.
