About Tombs of the Kings

A UNESCO World Heritage Site and famous necropolis in Paphos, Cyprus, the Tombs of the Kings is an underground, ancient burial site carved from solid rock and is now one of the most significant tourist attractions on the island. It is an area full of history and legend, revealing ancient burial traditions as well as religious and cultural customs, and exposes a whole story of local history. The site lies two kilometres to the west of Paphos Harbour, making it an important landmark of the west coast of Cyprus, which draws tourists who visit the nearby and beautiful coastal city.

The most prominent thing for visitors to see at the Tombs of the Kings is the ancient and impressive architecture as old and abandoned pillars, rock walls, frescoed sides and spacious courtyards make up the underground complex. Visitors can walk through passages and find the niches in which corpses were once kept, or see the remains of the grave goods buried with them, such as jewellery and small accessories. Some tombs contain large stone blocks barring the entrances, as a result of robberies, and others hold remains of artistic frescoes that once decorated the walls. Visitors can embrace the history of the experience by taking an audio guide tour, which reveals the stories of the tombs and leads them throughout the site with expert archaeological information.

Although outside the city walls, local buses from Paphos travel to the Tombs of Kings and visitors can take one of the regular services to just outside the site itself. It is less than a 30-minute drive to the nearest airport, Paphos International Airport, and drivers can follow directions to the major road of Leoforos Tafon ton Vasileon, which leads to the site.

The Tombs of Kings date back to the 4th Century BC when used as the burial sites for aristocrats and high officials, built for Hellenist people of nearby Nea Pafos. From these origins, the Romans and possibly early Christians also used the site but faced looting and vandalism throughout the Middle Ages until it became a protected historical site. Historians note that the architecture of the tombs is unusual and more Macedonian in style than the designs of other local landmarks.
